I was pretty hesitant to believe that electronic drones would be a key technology as we move into the future, but I’ve slowly been more and more convinced over the last several years. Not only has drone technology come a long way but so have the accompanied uses of them, so without rambling on too much here are a few ways I suspect that drones will change the world quite rapidly over the coming years.

The Firework Industry

I know this section may feel a little narrow but when you start to realize that the firework industry can net over $2 billion dollars in sales since 2020, it’s no wonder that this has earned an entirely dedicated section in my article. For starters, fireworks are expensive to the majority of the consumers, the average 4th of July firework show can cost about $15,000, and that’s a yearly investment! Enter the usage of drones and while the initial price tag of drones is likely far higher than that of fireworks, the amount of repeat uses you can have from drones is quite large. Being able to organize a lightshow around drones not only saves money over the long run but it can also reduce the amount of pollution we put both in the atmosphere and on the ground, let’s also not forget the potential to reduce a lot of fire hazards!

Sporting Events

While there is certainly a following of individuals that like to watch drone racing, I’m not personally part of that crowd. I am however a big fan of Formula 1 and over the last few seasons they been able to experiment with certain drone shots throughout the race weekend. This not only provides an otherwise impossible shot for most people to obtain either from the ground or even a helicopter, but it also just simplifies the filming process of the grand prix. I assume that as drone technology gets more and more advanced, we’ll start to see a lot more sports take adventure of this technology! Motorsports is a prime example, but I also don’t think it’s a farfetched idea to believe that other more localized sports could benefit from drone technology!


This is likely the most common topic whenever drones are brought up as a viable technology for the future, which I personally agree with. We already have incredibly rapid shipping across the United States…
