If 2014 was the year of the selfie, and ‘dronie’ is the likely successor, the coming months will continue to place unmanned aerial vehicles as a fixture in our collective day-to-day consciousness. Drones may seem a trend that has already peaked, but expect to hear less about who has hold of one (the answer may be everybody), and more about what they’re being used for. It may be common place to see an owner controlling their own in a local park, but the discussion about practical and real-world uses has only just begun. Drones aren’t a one-off fad; particularly with companies like Amazon keen on utilising them. More drones, being more useful, will be larger parts of our lives.
