Where is this headed? What will happen 10 years from now? No more new desktop systems or even laptops? Almost all will carry around these iPad-like devices - that have cameras, that have pico projectors integrated, possibly have several medical/lifestyle apps included, that will have sophisticated authentication (iris scan etc)?

Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
