Drones, a hot button issue for the dinner table these days. Military drone usage in particular has got many American’s up in arms. While drones may be low cost, as they are much cheaper than buying and maintaining airplanes, and have a higher rate of accuracy, the other limited abilities and ethical problems they produce may not add up. Civilian losses from collateral damage caused by drones paired with a sense of disconnect for human life from the drone operator could spell disaster.
The private sector of drone usage may have more to offer in terms of plausibility. Amazon has already been experimenting with Amazon Air Prime, their drone delivery system. They can have an individuals order delivered right to their door in or under thirty minutes. Better for the environment than a regular truck delivery, the battery powered drone gets to the customer faster than if they were to go out and buy it at a retail location.
