Although I fail to see the excitement and mass appeal of aerial drone use, the hobby has taken off on the tail end of military UAV. Just like the stationary 24/7 webcams, and web sites that catalog these cams, the drone networks, or communities may spawn entirely new interest groups.
Do you have a drone with the ability to stream video in realtime? You may drive a following to your stream based upon a multitude of reasons, e.g. location; subject(s) of focus. Once airborne, your drone may broadcast to a web site that tracks your drone’s latitude and longitude, as well as dynamically tagging the feed with relevant frame data. Object recognition may scan each frame, or a sampling for ‘objects of interest’. Objects of interest may appear to a community of enthusiasts as a ‘tag cloud’. Users may select a tag, and drill down to a list of active feeds. Alternatively, users may bring up a map view to show the active drones flights. The drones may also show ‘bread crumbs’ of a flight, maybe the last 1/2 hour, the buffered video available. Could be just an extension of YouTube, or a new platform designed entirely around Drone Realtime Streaming..
