Guess you can always aim geekier. Chris Anderson, the editor in chief of Wired magazine, plans to switch from the media world to robotics. His start-up, 3D Robotics, designs personal drones for private customers. “This is an opportunity for me to pursue an entrepreneurial dream,” Anderson said in a statement. “I’m confident that Wired’s mission to influence and chronicle the digital revolution is stronger than ever and will continue to expand and evolve.” He says drones could be used in place of more expensive helicopters. Also, they “don’t get bored,”  he said. They don’t charge overtime. They’re not unionized.” Touché.
