From their early use in the military to train pilots, to taking aerial surveillance snapshots they could bring back to base, the drone's had a varied and interesting history. With new camera technology, real time reconnaissance and weapon targeting's become a reality. Now smartphones have helped turn the drone into a mainstream consumer product. Adam Rothstein's history of drones is called Drone and it's part of the Object Lessons series published by Bloomsbury.
