GoPro Release First Footage From GoPro Quadcopter (video).

Citing unspecified national security concerns, the country is imposing export restrictions on supercomputers capable of 8 teraflop speeds and high-end aerial drones, according to China’s official news agency. The restrictions follow the announcement of the White House’s National Strategic Computing Initiative last week, which aims to unite US government supercomputing projects to create the first exoflop computer. Bob Sorensen, an analyst with research firm IDC, says that although China is home to the fastest supercomputer in the world, isn’t really a player in commercial high-performance computing, or HPC, market. “It’s not like they have robust export industry that this would affect in any capacity,” Sorensen says.

GoPro explains a little more about the GoPro Drone development process : Earlier this year, GoPro announced plans to release a quadcopter in the first half of 2016. The US announced its own restrictions on HPC technology last April that set limits on sales of to countries like North Korea and Cuba, and specifically forbade Intel from selling its high-end Xeon chips to four supercomputing sites in China. While Sorensen says it’s possible that China is adopting its own export rules in anticipation of stronger future sales, he thinks the ban could also be China’s way of signaling to other countries—possibly those the US has frozen out—that it has supercomputing tech to export. No post-production stabilization was implemented; this is an example of the incredible image quality we are already able to capture at this advanced prototype stage.

As for the drone restrictions, Xinhuanet says drones that are “capable of flying in gusty winds, hovering above 15,420 meters and having more than an hour of flight duration” are subject to the ban. Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet for the GoPro quadcopter, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always ahead of its early 2016 launch.
