I was just thinking about getting a small drone. It’s a pretty good way to scout the area and some of them stream some video back in real time to your smartphone or tablet. It’s a pity that they do not have proper night vision for a reasonable price yet!
The project looks really interesting. I think we will have lots of drones flying around in the future. Amazon for example already experiments with same day delivery via automated flying drones.
