Next Up for Outdoor Advertising: Flying Drone Billboards

Bobby Watts of Orlando, Florida has built the world's first digital 360-degree drone billboard. An avid model aircraft enthusiast, Watts was inspired to build the UAV-billboard by observing people's amazed reactions upon first encountering a drone being piloted. The billboard, which Watts calls "Drobotron", was stationed in front of Orlando's Parc Corniche Hotel. According to News4Jax, the Drobotron was hovering above the International Drive resort where it advertised pizza and margarita deals at the resort's restaurant. "Our patent revolves around a flying TV," says Watts. "The first time I saw it fly I thought, 'Wow, this is a game-changer.'"
