As if people need one more reason never to see their neighbors directly. Fatdoor is looking to relaunch a previously failed campaign, perhaps now banking on FAA approval of a widespread commercial drone market. Just today, in fact, it was announced that the FAA granted BP the first ever waiver to fly commercial drones over land.
Employing a quadcopter Skyteboard, users can deliver and/or trade items via drone, and post details through their social network to communicate the transfer. Other added benefits are for those who “might want to record their kids’ soccer games with drones flying overhead.” After all, why be there to film it yourself?
It remains to be seen if the investments into drone delivery by companies like Amazon will spur an economic transformation, but clearly an opportunity is being seized to offer modern civilization a way to see their local communities only through the filter of a computer screen. The cheery promo below introduces us to this potential reality (and, no, we are not endorsing this inane concept).
