Many in the tech industry say we've just begun to scratch the surface when it comes to drones. In their initial introduction to the world, drones have been mainly consumer-focused. But what's next for them? The future of drones for business is promising and exciting for many companies. The U.S. drone maker 3D Robotics, which is one of the world's biggest drone makers, is looking to the future of enterprise drones by creating a high-end version of their Solo drone. This drone could essentially 3D scan and map the Earth. For commercial purposes, this drone could upload 3D maps and models of construction sites, bridges, and more directly to the cloud while in the air, in real-time.

We've collected several videos on this topic. Watch them now to learn more.

And to learn more about the future of design in technology, check out our series Designing Innovation presented by the new Toyota Prius.
