The wonders of the future, what will they be?
There will be Robocops! : ) Already seen in the movies.
They will have prime directives. They will have emotions, like the fictional Murphy in the 1980s.
Re drones: A person can experience loss of contact with his or her drone (thedrone goes too high).The drone hovers, the battery dies, and the drone falls to earth.There is still the battery problem in all drones.
Any company that can revolutionize (revolutionise in the UK) the battery, will be the next mega company. I want to buy the first stocks if I onlyknew which company it would be.

Suppose I meant cut the internal wires somehow but not destroy it. I was probably thinking that drones had feelings and suffered pain if you hurt them too much!!! Perhaps tomorrow's drones will be programmed with human emotions and will revolt to any war undertakings but I doubt that will happen.
Interestingly, BBC Resources own a number of HD camera drones which are now in use in TV production. These are specially made to order from private firms which have sprung up from all over place. They also use a drone which has an umbelical cord which controls the thing. Power comes from the ground and the "thing" can stay in the air for long periods and can also carry a much larger camera. Obviously, it does a better job than a camera crane. It is restricted by the length and weight of the cord but the shots it delivers are breathtaking . It has been used on Dowton Abbey and other expensive productions. Just add up the rental on a crane for 4 months
And a drone makes sense. HD camera's are getting smaller all the time so anything is possible these days.
They say that pizzas are now being delivered by drones but I have not seen one go past my window yet. My butterfly net is waiting!
