It will be the statement made by today's children.

' I remember a time before autonomous drones and delivery bots. '

... just think about how many deliveries just one person could generate. Now imagine how magically things could suck when lots of people are getting lots of special deliveries.

Well we get the USPS, UPS and Fedex everyday already...not to mention the pizza delivery guy....I'd be more concerned about the high winds....we get some pretty strong wind(20mph) on a regular basis....and also some pretty pricey goods delivered at times...

Interesting presentation, I give you 350 bonus points.

Short on time, I did not get to watch all, and missed the segment with the drone disease vector - that one is especially scary.

LOL why don't you get off my back neck? I have had the feeling that no-see-ums have been attacking me. People driving in other lanes, not appreciating the gravity of the situation, as I try to brush bugs off with both hands, and no one at the wheel.

So far, so good, no hits, no runs, no errors.

One of those little drones with a small C4 charge flying into your jet intake would definitely ruin your day

I'm looking forward to Drones surrounding my house and launching little projectiles into it while I'm watching The Walking Dead.
