Recently, CBS 60 Minutes did a piece where Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos outlined a visionary future of package delivery by remote controlled drones. I applaud this step into a star wars type of package home deliveries. It is bold and if it works, will transform the way we do business.
In the movie, “Pacific Rim”, there is a sneaking feeling that we are looking at an almost prophetic movie where robots will one day be built to fight our battles and take our hits. Of course, most of them will be remote controlled.
We all know that Parrot Drones are great entertainment and provide all kinds of fun. The only problem is that they carry a relatively hefty price tag – only $300 US dollars. If you have the denarii, this might be okay but for many people who are keen hobbyists, this price takes it slightly out of reach.
We don’t normally give it second thought but the remote control has become a huge part of our daily lives. Well, for most people that is. For those who love just relaxing and enjoying a few hours of tv and cable daily, the remote control is an indispensible part of that.
In the remote control toy business, there is normally a sense of peace and kiddy like euphoria when playing or tinkering with a toy. The same goes for the industries involved behind it’s manufacture and sales. Well, almost.
