Yup, we’ve finally found a non-spying use for these things! The drones work by the pilot wearing a first person view monitor to view the drones position and drive it through set tracks. Of course, there is some more skill involved than just pushing a button and watching the whirley-gigs do their thing, but honestly I’m not qualified to tell you what those skills are. All I know is if we were going to get any closer to having pod racing become a reality this would be a nice non-lethal step!
