There's a new revolution happening overhead. The drones are coming
There are super-surveillance drones that can see objects six inches across from 30,000 feet, and track your movements all day long. Amazon.com plans to deliver goods to your door using drones. Farmers in Japan already spray 90% of soy crops with drones.
But drones also raise many issues. Anyone can fly one, putting them into restricted airspace and endangering lives. There are huge concerns about privacy. At the same time Drone Journalism is the new medium that allows the watched to watch the watchers. New capabilities of incredible speed and precision are being tested, with super HD sensors and drones built to look like birds and bugs. There are future uses that are still only ideas, but coming fast.
The drones have come home and are here to stay. The question is: who gets to use them, and how?
