Great things with drones
Drones are great!
The are so many great things you can do with drones, especially when they’re equipped with a camera. Dennis, someone within my family, is one of the lucky guys owning such a camera equipped drone. And not just “some” camera, but a 4K Ultra HD one which is recording video in extreme high quality. The drone is a spidery device with four arms, each balancing a plastic propeller, whirred as it hovered in the air, zooming to and from the house in a cyclical motion. Suspended from the center of the device was a camera. What the flying machine saw appeared on Dennis remote control screen.
Officially drones are named Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). As they become cheaper and more accessible, a new opportunity has been created for essentially everyone, all the way from the government to farmers, hobbyists and more. But as drone technology evolves, what are the social and ethical implications? How should their use be regulated? Is it even possible?
Legality of private drone use for profit is still hotly debated. And general drone use, even just as a hobby, raises concerns among some about safety and privacy. In the meanwhile, it’s showing me great video footage! 😉
