I think that's brilliant usage of a drone.

Are there any other usages that people can think of?

Wow, maybe the World's first news story about Drones that's positive.
Maybe they aren't evil after all.
Delivering aid direct to the poor in remote regions, use satellites to spot hungry children then send the co-ordinates to a drone to deliver them a banana.

Delivering drugs


I'm having a cup of tea.
So what twenty/thirty years here never ?
Carrying a container of my urine to dump 2 miles away from a house fire at Jeremy Clarkson's.
Can I hack a dash button to command a drone that will bring me chips on demand?
Also a security guard that will let the postie by, but fend off jehova's and chuggers etc.
saw a tv show where a drone pilot saw some pple stranded on a sand barrier in the sea and was able to notify lifeguard and save ppl from getting washed away
and another one where drone found woman with demtia that wandered out of house and into a cornfield
guess its not a good sad face story for the daily fail followers

Wait, how did the drone operator know the woman had dementia?
Great use of technology.

Uber quad, you select where you want to go on your phone. About six big quads converge on your current location, they drop a harness which you get into. They then each drop a line which you attach around the harness.
They then lift you to your selected location.
Here's a video of how it works in practice
