There May Be Drones in Your Future — Like It or Not

Hosted by

The uses of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, also called drones, are limited only by the imagination. Think of hovering cameras the size of hummingbirds or flies. Already being used by the military against hostile forces, by law enforcement and to patrol America's borders, by an act of Congress, signed by the President, drones will be a ubiquitous part of civilian life in America in a very short time. Drones are so cheap and so easy to make and operate that a booming new industry is already creating concerns about safety and privacy. We hear about what drones can do and ask if it's too late for the law to catch up with the technology?
