I have this idea and I think it will comes true in the future.

Once the drones has sensors on all 6 sides, it senses obstacle from all sides - basically it becomes crash-proof. Now, with a restrictive flight control similar to what DJI is doing with the NFZ, we can build a path or area for drones to fly - like a guided tour, but the drones can fly however they want within the confine of the path and areas.

A company can rent out drones in let's say: Athens or Egypt and the users pay the rental fee online to control the drone from their computers. So, someone in New York can rent a drone for half an hour and fly the drone in Athens, filming and taking photos (which they can download). This can be a global service for flying drones remotely through the internet.

Of course, the barrier is safety which needs to be resolved. There has to be sensors on all sides of the drone to be 100% crash-proof. Users need to be restricted to a certain path and area and they can't venture outside of it.

This will open up a whole new way to explore the world remotely from the comfort of your own home. Maybe even paired up with a VR goggles for an immersive experience.

It might help a lot, although moving objects will be harder to detect before it is too late.
But very interesting.
I'm sure it is already in development in some DJIlab

This is a great idea.  You could actually see the area where you are planning to travel in the future as an example.

Sounds like a fun idea.. I would certainly like to try it...  like I use google street view to 'walk around' in places that I would like to visit but in real time :-)

Do you want to finance me to start a new company. We just need to build a fleet of 6-axis sensor drones,  bribed officials from different nations to pass the legislation and create a website and app for the service. It's easy.

Yes and you can capture images that you can download, it's like you are really there - as a virtual tourist.
We already had live streaming videos for 2 decades, all this does is streaming live video from a flying camera - a camera that we can positioned any where in a 3 dimensional space.

Hi, guys. Thanks for all the suggestion and support. I believe that our engineers are working hard on developing new products.

I'm sure it'd be cheap...

Without common techical standards it will never happen.
For things like power supply, rc controller, battery, and so on.

For a start, generic power supplies supporting usb pd can deliver up to 100W.
