And somehow NONE of those companies have been dissuaded by Naysayer Bob whose ruins portend only doom.

If you think about the size of the home delivery business, it has to be in the trillions of dollars

If camera tech keeps appearing everywhere it may be difficult to get a decent injury lawsuit. At least a fraudulent one.

Even when they arenít installed on buildings, people, cars, are carrying them. ATMs, traffic cams etc.,

Way too soon, there aren't enough
of them yet. When I saw the pic
my very first thought was just one
more thing for people staring at
their phones to trip over.

They'll probably equip flying delivery drones with emergency parachute packs that activate during a malfunction.

Of course. You wouldn't want the liability of dropping a 40 lb piece of apparatus randomly from hundreds of feet in the air. You could kill someone.

Drones are already flying medicine and other emergency supplies on a regular basis in remote areas where ground transportation is a problem. Not sure if they have parachutes or not.

If I'm going to die soon, hope I get to be the first one who dies from a dropped drone delivery. Make a name for myself in trivia games everywhere. "He was killed by a 40lb package of baby diapers".

They have parachutes for small personal jets

Even with drones with camera systems you can't fly over people without a parachute

I hate to quote movies for my facts, but Terminator Dark Fate had a military grade Hummer equipped with a parachute.
