Ninox Robotics is an Australian start-up that operates drones around the country, capturing visual, infrared or geospatial data for businesses. While its drones are mostly autonomous, they still require a trained pilot to chart flight plans and follow government-mandated protocols.

We talked to Colin Smith, a former major in the Australian Defence Force, about what it's like operating a drone professionally, what training is needed, and what rules there are to follow while you're flying.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
