Keeping up with the droneses

With 300 hours of video uploaded to YouTube every minute and another 100 million hours of video viewed every day on Facebook, we’re awash in a sea of content.

As brands compete in an epic battle to gain eyeballs and clicking thumbs, new technology is opening up new ways of creating share-worthy, engaging content.

The launch of Facebook Live allows us to share drone footage straight to Facebook; whether you’re a travel photographer, a human rights activist, or a brand which loves to create stunning content, drones enable us to share our world on social media in new and engaging ways.

With 400 drone companies registered in New Zealand (!), our island nation is a hotbed of development in this space. We also have some of the leading tech development of Virtual Reality in the world.

At this month’s SMCAKL we'll be exploring the opportunities stemming from drones and VR, talk through the privacy and legal ramifications they bring – what are the rules on privacy if a drone takes a video of you in your backyard and shares it live to Facebook?

An interactive SMCAKL, come early to experience for yourself Virtual Reality and drones live at Vodafone HQ thanks to and
