The city will work with FAA to integrate autonomous drones into local airspace; doesn't that sound great?

NO, NOT REALLY:

Your daughter, shielding her face from a peeping drone (shadow in upper left corner). “Soon, this sort of thing will be a thing of the past,” says Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao. “The San Diego experimental program will relax restrictions on things like flight elevation. Going forward, this young lady will have no idea she’s being filmed, because the drone will be far too high in the sky for her to see. That’s what we mean by integration into the community: what you can’t see can’t upset you.”


Your scalp, as seen from space by a ML-116 Google Drone. “You really should do something about your dandruff,” says Secretary Chao. “And now that the Google Drone knows that, it can make sure that you are presented with the appropriate advertising during your daily online experience. Heck, it can even partner with an Amazon Drone to bring some Head & Shoulders right into your shower! Truly, we live in an age of wonder.”

That's a lame story. Most of the stuff worth filming from a drone is too close to airports to be legal. Assuming all drone flyers are pervs and only want to film kids is offensive.

Two-thirds of the drones mentioned in this lame story were focused on scalp care and shopping options. So, no assumption that "all drone flyers are pervs."

I can envision a possible additional usage here: spotting skin cancer. ;-)
