How Many Drones Does It Take to Change a Light Bulb?

“Work smarter, not harder” should be everyone’s mantra. Marek Baczynski certainly abides by it. Why else would he spend hours of trial and error figuring out how to get a drone to change a lightbulb? We can finally add ladders to the list of things robots will eventually replace.

After spending an entire day trying to get a slightly modified Eachine E30W drone to unscrew a light bulb and then screw a replacement back into the socket, Marek, and his pilot Sven, eventually switched to a Syma X5C-1 which got the job done in about ten minutes. Now let’s hope they move on to finding a drone that can take out the garbage, fold laundry, and shovel snow. [YouTube via Slorum]
