By turns creepy and exciting, drones are about to change our lives considerably. Tech advances that underpin today's smartphones are enabling the creation of smaller and cheaper drones, expanding applications for enterprises and consumers alike. Amazon plans to deliver packages within 30 minutes via Prime Air, and oil & gas companies use drones to monitor pipelines and offshore rigs. On the consumer side, amateur and professional photographers are finding inventive ways to capture footage from the sky.

From bans and restrictions on aerial litter to privacy concerns, how will the challenges affect their potential? Listen in on this thoughtful discussion with innovators who are creating the products that are transforming what we can see and do from the sky.
