Wait and See
People are going to use drones in unexpected ways—someone has already said they've made a drone that can deliver tacos, and the FAA won't be able, or prepared to anticipate everything. Drones will scare people, but they need to be informed of drones' potential to save lives in dangerous situations and find disaster survivors, says Rosenzweig. The government needs to proceed carefully in this area.
"If [drones] are laid on table without thinking about the legitimate and sensible privacy concerns people will have, without developing an oversight mechanism, we won't be able to gain the positive benefits of drones," he says.
