The thought occurred to me that mounting a video projector to a flying drone could give it unusual capabilities.
My first idea was to use it for special effects at a concert or major indoor event. But a device like this could also be used for spot advertising – creating momentary images on the sidewalk or parking lot; subliminal advertising – suggesting a variety of products or services inside graphic images; emergency rescue – displaying a series of arrows to help someone lost in a forest; or image masking – to disguise someone’s body and facial features to prevent them from being monitored.
This line of thinking started me down several dozen new paths almost instantly.
Drones can be low flying, high flying, tiny or huge, silent or noisy, super-visible or totally invisible, your best friend or your worst enemy.
We can add lights, sound, cameras, microphones, sensors, robotic arms, wave cancellation technology, or wave enhancement technology.
Simply adding a robotic display will enable us to fly in and have a private video conversation with someone on the other side of the world.
Flying drones can also roll along the ground, stick to the side of a building, float in a river, dive under water, jump onto a building, climb a tree, or attach themselves like parasites to the sides of trains, ships, and airplanes.
One moment they can be hovering in front of you and the next they can fly off at the speed of sound, disappearing into the clouds.
Combining all these capabilities, attributes, and special features into one single device will open up a world of possibilities unlike anything before in all history.
Join me as we step into the magical world ahead being unleashed with this amazing new technology – flying drones.
