File this one under “what?!”. Twitter has a new patent that appears to be a user-controlled, camera-mounted, self-tweeting drone. The patent explains that users will be able to send messages to the drone and give it instructions. The drone can then use its camera to capture content and tweet it out for you! Imagine being at a sporting event and having the ability to detect that a drone is nearby, sending it a message to come find you, have it take a picture of you, and then have it tweet that picture out to the world. That’s the type of situation that would become possible with this technology. Not all patents end up coming to market, but it’s still neat to see how these companies are pushing the envelope when it comes to the technology of the future!
