LAS VEGAS, NV - Drones have gotten a bad rap recently. Mostly do to confusing regulations or warfare usage. But when it comes to what drones can do to help us out in the future, the sky's the limit! Not only are these things easy to fly, you'll be amazed at what they can carry. A hot new drone being showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, can sense heat with its thermal imaging camera.

Daniel Pawlowski, drone pilot and owner of Up In The Air Films, says, "Not only are you going to see what's on fire, but you're also going to be able to see the different temperatures of the people inside. So you'll be able to tell, we have three people in this room, we have a person in that room. That's where we have to focus our attention"

In fact, many believe drones will soon be popping up in wide range of fields. Pawlowski adds, "I definitely think, a lot of your corporate uses, whether it's agriculture, search and rescue, inspection, property surveillance, oil and gas. It's already being used in all these industries."

Another new flying machine wooing folks at CES, is a prototype drone big enough to carry a person. From the looks of things, you could say future drone technology promises to be a wild ride, literally!
