My brother actually did bring around a giant drone that can do exactly what’s described in the comic, and it’s amazing. The second panel is a photo taken from a few hundred metres above my parents’ house, pointing in the direction of the city (pronounced like the fictional verb Melbin’). In reality it has an inbuilt safety feature that prevents it from flying any closer than a metre to anything; that didn’t stop my brother from shredding his own fingers when he automatically tried to grab it by the propellors when looked like it was about to crash, though.
