Dawn of the Planet of the Drones
As Drones or UAVs become more popular and mainstream, it’s inevitable that in addition to the innovation going on today in the commercial sector, you and I will naturally find somewhat more cool and unusual uses for our personal Drones as after all we are smart cookies aren’t we ?

You would be forgiven for thinking that this is definitely something Drones won’t ever be getting involved with – but think again ! Bet you didn’t think that drones could not only make cakes, but decorate them as well?
Here is another surprising example of just how versatile these little machines can be….
