I think one of the best examples, if you get into the area of robotics, is probably civil applications of drones. I think this one is going to disrupt a lot of sectors. It's also disrupting regulations, because now Transport Canada has to look at how it will regulate this.
It's interesting, because drones incorporate a lot of other disruptive technologies such as 3-D printing. All of the drones have parts and components printed and the reason is that 3-D printing allows for a reduction in the number of components in a product. Traditionally you would make one part and make another part and then glue them together or weld them together or screw them together. 3-D printing allows you to reduce the number of parts by printing two, three, or four components in one shot, so you have more complex shapes.
If I knew where it was going to disrupt, I'd be investing there right away. I think you're going to see a lot of applications in places where it's very expensive or dangerous to send a human being. You're going to see a lot of them in the Arctic, with pipeline inspections, for geomapping for the oil sands, inspection of hydro, and all kinds of applications like that. I think that is more disruptive than what you see in the media about delivering a pizza. I'm not sure about that, but I think there are a lot of industry applications that would be disruptive. That would be one of them.
The other thing is that in any makerspace you visit you'll see people building drones, because if you have the right skills and the right equipment, it's easy to invent new applications with the advanced cameras and the advanced vision systems. That's pretty much one example you should keep your eyes on.
