Why isn’t there a drone in every home?
Show Notes

Drones have been around for a while now. Why is it that they haven’t become mainstream yet? Skydio’s Martin Brandenburg says the reason is that they are dumb. Cue plenty of YouTube clips of drones doing silly things and getting into many accidents. 

So what’s the missing ingredient? Autonomy. Skydio’s drones are completely autonomous, have omnidirectional high resolution vision, nine realtime neural networks, and will figure out how to get to a destination on their own. Just tell them where you want them to go. Is this the future ordering takeaway, capturing video of family holidays, collecting your dry cleaning?

Martin Brandenburg, VP of international business development at Skydio, gave a speech on the Auto/Tech  stage at Web Summit 2021.

"The best technology conference on the planet".
