Did you see the Richard Branson drone video?

This video shows the drone descending on Branson’s private island, saying hello to Branson.

Richard Branson is adding drones to his portfolio and not just to take fancy pictures (although that doesn’t hurt).

The Branson Drone is Harmless

A publicity video by 3D Robotics was welcoming Branson as an investor. He blogged:

It’s amazing to see what a little flying object with a GoPro attached can do; before they came along the alternative was an expensive helicopter and crew. I’m really excited about the potential for drones, and I hope this affordable technology will give many more people the chance to see our beautiful planet from such a powerful perspective.

But it’s not just about beauty shots. When you say the word ‘drone’, most people will think about military drones, which are used for surveillance and warfare. But this increasingly affordable, easy to use technology is starting to be used around the world in many positive ways. Like to monitor endangered species, deliver healthcare to remote areas, and help manage natural disasters.
