According to The Economist, the first of drones were for military use. The use of non-pilot flying machines as weapons first started at the siege of Venice in 1849; Austrian forces laced balloons with explosives to attack Venice. The first successful example of a drone was the de Havilland DH82B Queen Bee, which began its service in Britain during 1935 and seems to have been the inspiration for calling such aircraft “drones” after sting-less male bees.

Expectations for the growth of the drone industry are soaring as companies like Amazon and Google are releasing more and more ides to the public causing people to make more predictions about the future of drones. The Google and Amazon projects like Google’s Project Wing and Amazon’s Prime Air likely won’t be what everyone thinks and hopes it to be but it probably will dominate the market solely due to its popularity and convenience. If you would like to watch Amazon’s release of their drone you can do so here. Social media is another reason for the popularity of drones and their possibilities, people on Youtube are filming with drones to show their capabilities with film and what they could do for movie producers and sports footage.

With all of the largest companies using drones in everyday situations like shipping all the other companies are competing for what is going to be the next breakthrough. With all of the possibilities of technology in general there is supposed to be some interesting features and uses for technology in the future. For the uses of drones, VR, and maybe even robots the uses are unlimited and the possibilities are endless.
