A drone’s eye view: using tech to get a better view of Museum Park

We’ve covered Amazon’s plans to use drones as a means for same-day delivery right to your doorstep.

Rendering of future Patricia and Phillip Forst Museum of Science While that technology is still years away, drones are already whizzing above us – and you need not look far for a real-world example.

It’s still illegal to use drones for commercial purposes, but these devices are authorized to capture aerial images and video, so long as the operator does not charge for his or her services.

The new Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, now underway in downtown Miami’s Museum Park, is embracing drone technology by sending these robots into flight to shoot real-time video and still photos of the construction site. It’s an environmentally-friendly and cost-efficient way to monitor progress, while providing a sneak-peek at how technology will factor into the new Museum.

We think this is a great idea, and we can’t help but imagine more ways that drones will be used in the future across all sectors of real estate – and beyond.
