If CES 2015 was made into a movie it would have been a horror movie called Attack of the Drones. Drones were everywhere – and behind each of them was a recent college grad with a joystick controller.
If CES 2016 was made into a movie it would have been a sequel – Attack of the Intelligent Drones.
Drones are changing the way we view our world.
Most drones now are birthed with cameras built-right-in. Why? The cameras assist operators during flight (live streaming), capture high-res stunning videos and images, and – most importantly – give the machines sight – a prerequisite in order to be able to navigate the world free of meddling mortals.
We also glimpsed the beginnings of software platforms that seek to give operators the ability to control and monitor many drones at once.
