Of course, it all starts in Japan with Secom to soon lease out surveillance drones to clients in 2014. The drones will be dispatches out the second a break-in or other similar crimes are detected, where it will jump into the skies and patrol the area. The drone will have a much better chance of getting footage of the event, compared to traditional fixed-place cameras.

 

The drone will track motion through it's built-in laser, and they should hit rental abilities by April 2014 for around $58 a month. Not too bad at all, if you ask me.
