Google patent suggests using quadcopters for videoconferencing

Videoconferencing is frustrating, joyless, and tedious, but Google has somehow come up with a way to make it even worse: drones. As first spotted by Quartz, the search giant was this week awarded a patent for a "mobile telepresence" system using video cameras and screens fixed to quadcopters. The patent suggests the drones could be used for normal telepresence (letting someone remotely explore a second location), or to dial in to videoconferences, letting the user "interact and engage with the participants" — by flying around.
