The Decaying Of Detroit As Seen From A Drone

If there is any city in the United States that could be a harbinger of the future of the country it has to be Detroit. Once the hub of just about everything manufacturing for the country it has slide into some of the most toughest economic times of any city in the supposed leading country of the world.

From churches to factories to schools the sense of abandonment is so prevalent that you can feel it in the air and it is from this vantage point that a fellow by the name of Tretch5000 used his Scarab QUAD X Stealth-FPV Reconn Quadrotor to document what is happening in the city.

The video is both touching and depressing as it shows the once gem of America slowly becoming a backwater city.

About the Author

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
