In the hope that this joke never sees the light of day again, Linux distro maker Canonical and drone maker Parrot have joined forces to create S.L.A.M.dunk, a development kit to help design autonomous vehicles that avoid obstacles even in the most innest of indoors.

The system uses a combination of Ubuntu and ROS (Robot Operating System) to provide an environment for prototyping self-driving, 3D mapping or data gathering. Attaching it to a drone turns it into an "intelligent robot", according to Ubuntu.

  • Run Widgets on Your Ubuntu Desktop with Plexydesk

    If I asked you about Plexydesk you’d probably look at be blankly. I last mentioned the promising widget-toting project five years ago today. Curious as to what became of it I went on a Google today. It only took a few characters strokes to discover that the project is still very much alive.

Filed under
Ubuntu

With Ubuntu 16.04LTS (Xenial Xerus), Canonical has introduced incremental improvements to the popular server and cloud versions of its operating system, but if you were looking for exciting changes to desktop Ubuntu, this version isn’t it.

The 16.04 release is an iterative, not necessarily massive improvement. But this is an Long Term Service (LTS) version, which means that there’s a team working on keeping it solid for five years. So, into the next decade, 16.04 gets patched and fixed, as other versions continue to be released on a regular basis.
