How fun are Drones!? Iphones kinda made us feel like we’ve made it to the Jetsons era, but personal flight devices is really what we needed to make us feel like we’re in the future. I wonder why we never saw drones on a Star Trek? But Star Wars knew. 😉 (Remember the little round levitating droid helping Luke practice with the light saber?)
So now that we’re finally embarking on the future, what can we expect from these little guys, in and around our homes, neighborhoods and cities?
As we are very much on the beginning edge of the drone revolution, it’s hard to really grasp the uses we can put them towards. Just like we could not guess the sheer number of apps and the many uses we put them towards on our mobile device when the iPhone first came out, similarly we can’t yet get the full picture of how many ways we’ll use these newly opened up 3 dimensions now available to us.
For so long, we have accepted our fate of mostly being relegated to the 2 dimensional surface of the planet that we live on, build on and basically live on.
The old real estate adage of “They’re not making any more land.” may become extinct as we grasp our newly found 3-D freedom.
With the advent of exponentially improved drone technology over the next few years and decades, we can anticipate layers of drone highways in the air, moving product, services and of course people around without the oh so quaint and antiquated idea of gravity holding us to the surface of the earth.
Today’s show is going to be an exploration of where we know we are going with Drone technology, where we think and where we hope it will go, and how all it may affect your home and community of the future.
