Many advances in human-computer interaction (HCI) are driven by technological advances. Recently, a new category of devices became small enough, cheap enough, and robust enough to be available for the mass market: drones . Insights Initially, drones were for non-civilian use, but over the past 10 years, they have become toys controlled by hobbyists. With both drone technology and computing hardware growing lighter, drones can now handle a payload sufficient to carry sensors and actuators. This makes using drones interesting for user interface researchers and designers of interactive systems, as drones are now able to bring user interfaces…
