Drones to replace humans?

New research suggests delivery of products by Google and Amazon is just one small way drones are going to replace humans. The tiny airborne vessels will soon clean windows on skyscrapers, verify insurance claims and spray pesticide on crops.

The global market for drones, valued at around $2 billion today, will replace up to $127 billion worth of business services and human labour over the next four years, according to a new research by consulting firm PwC.

Will the drone become as ubiquitous in our environment as the Mcdonalds delivery guy? What will the implications be for our privacy, air safety and job security? Will the legislation be able to keep up with the rapid changes?
