Drones (unmanned aircraft)

are an example of finding more uses than the initial purpose. Drones were initially developed for military use but recently, mini drones have been developed for

- delivering parcels

- delivering medical equipment, ie they can deliver equipment in 1/10th of the time it takes for an ambulance to do the same job

- taking aerial photos, eg helping firefighters understand fires and police inspect crime scenes (source: SBS, 2014a)
