Drones are controversial, they are either seen as killing machines or as the next pizza delivery guy. There is not much room for imagination in between. This new species has a great potential that needs to be discussed. What’s Flying There? is a coloring book that opens up new perspectives for drones applications in the human habitat.
What’s Flying There?
What’s Flying There? is a coloring book, for children and adults, that creates another perspective on the controversial subject of drones. It tells the story of Avi, a cute little bird that lives in a war zone and is hunted down by military drones. One day, a new friend helps her escape to a place where drones do good things, like farming the land and fighting diseases.

Meet the Good Drones
Drones For Humanity
The applications and possibilities engendered by drones are endless and limited by our own imagination. As with all emerging technology, there are some big questions to be answered. Who will regulate drones and how will they do it in a way that encourages, not stifles, innovation? How do we ensure they don’t become invisible yet pervasive machines? How can we mitigate privacy concerns? How will we live with a sky full of drones? Ultimately, how can we use this technology to enhance our lives and our planet? Good and bad, drones are here to stay. How do you think we should be using them?
