Drones Help Find Pets

FROM BEING ABLE TO HIT THE PRINT BUTTON FOR A NEW HOUSE, WE MOVE TO FURTHER PROOF THAT WE ARE LIVING IN THE FUTURE: DRONES.

THEY CAN OCCASIONALLY BE A NUISANCE – LIKE THIS DRONE THAT MADE AN UNEXPECTED CRASH LANDING ON SEATTLE’S ICONIC SPACE NEEDLE…BUT THESE HIGH-FLYING HELPERS ARE CHANGING THE WAY WE DO THINGS: AMAZON HAS BEEN TESTING A DRONE DELIVERY SYSTEM IN THE U.K; AND RELEASED THIS VIDEO OF A SUCCESSFUL PACKAGE DELIVERY IN THE RURAL VILLAGE OF CAMBRIDGESHIRE. AND, RECENTLY, AMAZON MADE ITS FIRST DRONE DELIVERY HERE IN THE U.S.

WELL, SOME ANIMAL-LOVERS IN FLORIDA ARE NOW USING THIS TECHNOLOGY TO HELP PET OWNERS IN ONE OF THE SCARIEST SITUATIONS -- LOSING A PET.

JACQULYN POWELL HAS THE STORY.
