I spent most of the morning doing some Spring cleaning. Early/Late? I can’t tell. It’s stuff that has been on my to-do list for at least several months, maybe even a year ago. I did the same most of yesterday. Suffice to say, I’m a little tired.
A few weeks ago I received a couple of emails, where a company was pitching some kind of drone service for construction professionals. I wasn’t really interested.
Some of the drone services available are beyond the scope of individual users, and outside what I’m interested in covering.
But, the topic is still quite interesting. There is great potential in the technology that exists, and one of these days there’s bound to be a “that’s actually really useful” idea that a company comes out with.
In the meantime, let’s have a little fun imagining what drones could do.
In 5 years, there will be personal drones that can…
Bring me my safety goggles and hearing protection. I keep multiple sets and sometimes I still can’t find anything!
Aim a worklight exactly where I need it to. “Alexa, turn the flashlight 5 degrees left.”
Okay, your turn. What ideas do you have? Wants? Needs? Take a break, and put your imagination to work. These ideas don’t have to be practical, they can be silly to. As in:
In 5 years, there will be personal drones that can… keep me cool when I work outside in the summer.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to fantasize about having a personal drone that automagically makes or brings me lunch. Star Trek-style Replicators would be amazing. “Alexa, give me a cheeseburger.”
