What the good drones are up to

We know what bad drones can do, but what about the good ones? Sensefly is a company that can map a disaster site with a few hand-held robot planes. Their latest PR move is to map the Matterhorn with the same technology. It’s pretty remarkable. Watch the video.

You see this and you realize it’s is being done by a small company with limited funds. Soon, these things, and other robots like them, are going to be everywhere. I imagine they’ll be putting aerial survey pilots out of business just as soon as the FAA sorts out how to manage drones and people in the same airspace.

And while these guys map the earth, the underwater drones will be spanning the seven seas. Get ready for a data tsunami.
