? highway to the danger zone ? Normally, I don't do this. I have to report that -- But when I do -- There was developing news in the break. We're doing a story about drones. You hear the song. Paula was playing that song. There was incredibly dorky dancing going on on the set. I don't want to name any names but his initials are rob Marciano. Those aren't initials. Oh, my bad, my bad. For once Dan, you're correct. I would like to say Dan recused himself. I didn't want to talk about the hamstring. A new extreme sport. It's airborne. Drone racing. Rob's been getting a drone's eye view. Last Christmas, 400,000 drones were delivered to would-be pilots. Some, hovering above the living room is not enough. They're taking it to the next level. The next formula one of drone racing. 100 dreen pilots convening here at the liberty science center in New Jersey. The liberty cup, the only race with New York City as backdrop. Flying these drones is like a mix of NASCAR, video games, and vr. Reporter: How fast can some of the drone get going? Over 100 miles an hour. Reporter: The key is, go fast, don't crash. Not always the easiest thing to do. What are your main concerns with racing against these competitors? Just trying to keep it in the air and not crash. Reporter: Do you have a call sign. Are you maverick, goose? I'm just known as zoomas. Reporter: That sounds fast. What's your call sign? I go with ohmigod. Reporter: This looks complicated. It's not. We wear these goggles. What we see is what the drone cease. This is where the magic happens. Reporter: Can I feel and see what it looks like? Absolutely. As long as you promise not the fall over. Reporter: I might do that. ? whoa. Oh, my goodness. Dude, you're -- you're make me sick to my stomach. Whoa! Oh, my god, that's why they call you that. I'm almost falling over. Don't fall over. Reporter: That was unbelievable. Think I like this sport. Yes, that is -- what you're seeing. It's not virtual reality. It's reality through goggles. It's like flying in an airplane. These guys are crazy with what they do. It's all about science, technology, engineering, and math. It's a big S.T.E.M. Thing. They were all smart kids. A lot of them are gamers to go outside and do this. It's nice for the gamers to see sunlight. We've come a long way from the days of the whirly bird. Thank you, rob. I give everybody credit.
