Drones are becoming increasingly popular, but why? One….THEY ARE AWESOME!! Besides that though they have a lot of practical uses to them. First Amazon plans on unleashing an army of drones to deliver packages (personally I find this unlikely for awhile). Let’s look at some other uses and why Drones are going to take the market by storm.
Sorry Sean Penn but this is really going to piss you off. Believe it or not this is already happening. It was long ago that Tina Turner’s wedding was photographed by a drone. The culprit was apprehended but nonetheless this could be a great way for peeping toms to watch from a distance.
For $600 you can by an AR Drone. What is that you ask? Well basically you fly your drone through your phone, tablet, or iPad and you are able to see what it would be like to FLY THE DAMN DRONE FROM THE COCKPIT!! Not only that you can record the whole flight.
YEP!! The police are using drones for surveillance and related activities. The ACLU is all over this because of the fourth amendment. Law enforcement is even buying them armed with rubber bullets and tears gas. Police Drone
I think it can be a great tool for law enforcement but I can also see the potential for abuse. It’d still be pretty cool to see a car chasing using a drone though
Above is news clip about using drones to hunt feral pigs in Louisiana. Give it another 5 years and the technology for average consumers will be advanced enough control drones for miles. It would make for one hell of a hunting trip.
Farmers and Firefighters
Farmers already have it pretty hard drones would make it increasingly easier to inspect crops and irrigation systems. Could even be used to dust crops. Drone forest fire
Fighting wild fires is incredibly dangerous, drones help with that. Not only could drones help spot wild fires but they could actually help put them out. Just like anything else though the governement stepped in and is making it difficult to use drones.
Eye of the Storm
Have you seen the movie Twister starring Bill Paxton? The part where they had all those little ball thingys that they put into the tornado. Think about something similar to that but using drones. Storm chasing is insanely dangerous. Twister
Drones will take on much of that risk. Drones with the proper equipment would be able to collect an unprecedented amount of information to better understand tornado, hurricanes and any other weather phenomenon you can think of.
You can see that there is a lot of practical use fro Drones. This list serves only as an example of some of the uses for Drones. The list goes on and on. Read the full list for best mini quadcopters. Sports will soon be filmed using drones. I can see a huge demand for them in the near future. I can also for see and unbelievable amount of controversy over drones, privacy issuse and such. Not long we will be able to control these things for miles from the comforts of out own homes. Even be able to take one for a spin over the African Safari while sitting on a couch in Drummond, Montana. Everyone will own one and they will use them for variety of different things! Drones are truly revolutionary.
