How Many Drones Does It Take to Change a Lightbulb?

By

Today in “Things That Would Be Easier If You Did Them Without the Drone” news, please watch as some guy on YouTube attempts to change a lightbulb using a drone. The bulb in question doesn’t appear to be in a particularly high or hard-to-reach spot, so the drone appears to be used for pure novelty value. Still, it’s fairly satisfying to see that bulb finally make a connection and start to glow.

According to the video’s description, it took two drones and seven lightbulbs before the stunt was successful. (The video is currently on the front page of /r/videos and already has over 75,000 views.) I’m just wondering why nobody thought to throw down a blanket or some towels to keep the bulbs from shattering on the ground every time the drone failed to install them in the socket. But hey, hindsight, I guess!

Even if seven lightbulbs were hurt in the making of this video, it’s still better than that guy from last week who tried to shave another guy’s head using electric clippers hanging from a drone.
