Boo – Unmanned Style

Gotta admit, this is pretty good (creepy, actually):

So, how about it?  Maybe children in the future will use drones to collect Halloween candy.  Far-fetched or not, adults with means are considering the commercial applications of drones in the present, says this report:

Tim Draper, an early investor in Hotmail, Skype and Baidu Inc., is now backing DroneDeploy, a startup that’s building software to direct unmanned aircraft on land mapping and the surveillance of agricultural fields. Draper even expects drones to one day bring him dinner.

“Drones hold the promise of companies anticipating our every need and delivering without human involvement,” Draper, 55, wrote in an e-mail. “Everything from pizza delivery to personal shopping can be handled by drones.”

Trick or treat?
