Drones in UAE

There soon might be drones (small aircrafts without human pilots) buzzing around in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum (image), the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, recently oversaw pilot tests for drones. The government wants to use these little flying crafts to deliver light-weight objects such as documents. Fingerprint recognition will be used to make sure the package is being delivered to the right person. Further work on the drones is being done. You can watch a video here.
