Flying Food : Unlocking the agricultural potential of urban airspace
As drones continue to move towards mass industrial adoption, how can this emerging technology allow us to rethink our agricultural production processes? Considering drones as a new form of aerial urban infrastructure, these autonomous vehicles enable us to tap into the productive potential of our urban airspace, and reimagine the city as three-dimensional agricultural garden.
