The Consumer Electronics Show is busy this year promoting UAVs, or Drones in their vernacular.  This BBC summary of the show focuses on battery life and the selfie culture with social media right now, not on commercial, aerial survey aspects.

As with my past post, models like these will increase interest in the devices, but also increase improper use, hurting the future commercial market for aerial survey as many people will have their privacy intruded upon in ways that people will extrapolate their opinions to the commercial market, hurting valid uses of the aerial platform.
