In the 21st century, autonomous flying vehicles known as drones have crossed over from science fiction to reality.
Applications of drones include surveillance, filmography and geomapping — fields that have seen the technology become increasingly commonplace in recent years. In the delivery space, too, drones hold great promise.

Most recently, the company partnered with Unilever to offer ice cream delivery in the sky.
