Drones for good

Here is a nice little article from Richard Branson (@richardbranson) about using the rapidly developing advancements in UAV technology for good causes. Which is quite refreshing, since most of the news on drones is about surveillance and discussions regarding lethal autonomy.

"Earlier this year, the Consumer Electronics Show described 2014 as “the year of the drone”. In the last month alone, Google has unveiled a new drone delivery system, the Pentagon has announced a new drone base in the Sahara, and conservationists have been using drones to monitor, study and protect endangered species."

There is so much more you can do with an Eye in the Sky than invade peoples privacy. How would you make a drone a do gooder?
