A friend of mine posted a link to this article yesterday. Flying ‘drones’ that broadcast a wi-fi signal.
These drones use a GPS system to know where they are at, know where the other drones are at, and interact with each other.
The opportunity that struck me is using these in crowded places where internet or network access might be harder to get. Something like a crowd of protesters who may not have access or have been revoked of access.
Our drone friends could be flying around offering an easy way to connect and share data.
If you watch the video, you’ll see that are almost like little spaceships flying over the crowd.
My first use for these would be music festivals Usually you are stuck way out in the middle of no where and unable to share any data. Send a couple of these around 100,000 people smashed into one music event and let the digital sharing begin!
