Drones have been high on the agenda at the Consumer Electronics Show, taking place in Las Vegas this week.
The flying objects, equipped with a camera, present major opportunities to a variety of industries and organisations, including delivery and distribution firms, the government and law enforcement. However, there are many concerns over privacy and safety.
At the event, a drone from company FlyHawk was flying around and snapped pictures of the event and even of itself.
There was also the revealing of a new product called Nixie, which combines drones and wearables. It is a drone worn on the wrist that can be detached, and allowed to take flight and snap photos from different perspectives.
Patrick Moorhead, critical technology analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy, told ABC News that this year's CES show was exhibiting at least twice as many drones as last year.
He said: "What it comes down to, is the fascination with any type of object that can be controlled like a robot.
"What makes drones so awesome is, historically, it had been so hard to operate anything that can fly."
