Telepresence & Drones

By 2050 virtually all delivery and hazardous environment operations will be conducted either by automated drones or telepresence. It is quite likely that sensors built into apparel will allow fast and intuitive control of such drones for everything from surgery and bomb disposal to controlling robots in orbit or on the moon. While this could result in a shift of drones and robots more toward the human-shaped robot of classic science fiction, it may also mean people become very used to controlling robots of very non-human design, which mostly operate autonomously but which can be briefly overridden when a person feels a need to assume direct control.
