Look up in the sky, bird? Plane? Nope Drone!

I realize that I am often on the cutty edge of technology, far beyond what most folks that read my pieces even remotely care about. I do also know, that beyond me there are those even further on the cutting edge working on even more amazing things than I have and do consider.

One of the concepts that I find very interesting is the expanding world of Modular drones. There are several drone companies making and delivering drones today. A modular done allows you to quickly switch the capabilities of the drone. Waterproof camera, sonar, 4k camera or even Libar and infrared camera. All functions that a modular drone can provide. Take off, use one module, return, replace the battery, and take off with next module.

Today many police and rescue departments use drones to find lost people or lost children. It is amazing what you can do with a drone now.

But, there are new things coming that I’ve written about many times over the years. Aerial metal detectors, for drones. Not to find weapons but to find coins on the beach. Fly the drone over the beach it tells you where the coins are.

My joke ages ago was pack a sock full of nickles and go to the beach. Watch the metal detection drones gather overhead.  More and more things are possible in the expanding drone market. Where things will end up, we shall see.

But I know this, drones are here. They are not going anywhere, other than up, over and around things that are in their way!

I am a long time blogger and technology poster.I focus on what is possible, but I also try to see what is coming. In recent years I have been focused on sharing the memories of my family, as part of my Family History Project.

  2. A few months back when we were in a mountain resort, we were surprised to hear a buzzing sound in the air. At first we thought it was a bird or animal that was producing the sound until my brother-in-law spotted the drone above.
