Technology keeps advancing at a rate that is amazingly fast. During the twenty-first century, we have seen technologies die, and new ones take over. One of this new exciting technologies, is the unmanned radio-controlled plane, or as popularly known, drone. Below we discuss some of the top uses of drones and see how they make our lives better.
Functions of drone
Surprisingly enough, the military brought about the idea of drones. The need to reduce the numerous pilot deaths behind enemy lines saw the rise of the drone. Initially, the drone was designed by German and American scientists to allow people sitting in a safe station, control planes overseas by use of radio waves. Eventually, this saw the day od light. Developed nations have adopted the drone as part of their military service, using it to conduct reconnaissance and even carry out targeted missions.
This might seem absurd, but some people have used phones for transportation. Big companies such as Amazon have working prototype drones that can be used to deliver goods to people’s homes. Another Chinese company has also showcased their human-sized drone that can autonomously transport humans from one location to another.
The film industry welcomed the drone with open arms. Almost every filmmaker, even the amateurs, are all acquiring filming drone. Why do you ask? Well with a filming drone, you can do a plethora of shooting magic inexpensively. Dor instance, an indie filmmaker, can quickly make Hollywood standard aerial shots that a few years ago, would need hiring a helicopter and pay per the hour. This is one of the most notable successes of the drone. The next time you see excellent aerial videos, chances are they were shot courtesy of a drone.
Drones come in all shapes and sizes. Companies that make drones have realized the interest people have on the amazing machines that they make drones for virtually any field. A field that has seen
significant attention is recreations. Children can now buy radio controlled toy drones for a few dollars. There are even drones that can be used to surf on the ocean, no need to wait for the big waves to have fun.
Drones have a plethora of uses, and we are expected to see more applications emerge especially in this fast paced tech times. With power consumption rapidly improving, battery technology being better and the public’s interest on the incline, it is an assuring that drones are here to stay.
