Inspiring both controversy and the imagination, like many innovation before them, drones were built first by the military, for the military. Interestingly, the technology that enables drones, and drives their proliferation, also comes from the military. The internet and social media have pushed drones into the mainstream consumer’s life, with vast numbers of people being reached by drone-driven content daily. Additionally, the Internet of Things has helped further the applications that make drones so useful today.
Where else do we see drones? Farmers, as it turns out, are pretty good customers of drones. From crop surveillance to precision agriculture, drones, like other autonomous vehicles, have revolutionized various processes for farmers.
More you ask? Well there are professional drone races with racers pocketing a cool 6 figures for their efforts. They deliver packages, although your pizza is probably going to take a while before it learns how to fly.
