Delivery drones seem innocuous enough, I suppose, at first glance. I realize this post is tongue in cheek, but the fact that 30,000 drones are expected to be deployed over American skies over the next few years makes it feel like a warning. I’m not sure what bothers me more: the quantity of drones in our future, or the potential uses they might have.

I think they could be hazardous to people and animals flying all over the place. What about power lines and etc.? I don’t like the idea at all!

There are definitely some things going on with this that will have to be looked at very hard.
I like, to a point, the idea that people want to explore possibilities. It’s when I realize that I have to factor in the greed part, (which makes people cut too many corners usually), that this kind of thing makes me nervous.
I can see a lot of issues.

I agree,… you can’t (unfortunately at times) stop the technology. It looks like progress, and to a certain group it really is. The guy running Amazon obviously knows what he’s doing as far as making something successful. But, my problem with those types is that 95% of the time success breeds a very “all-knowing” attitude. Which blended with the inherent greed involved, makes me uneasy.
I don’t think the drone thing will happen anytime soon to any large extent. But it will be an interesting thing to watch.
