A Swiss firm by the name of Skye Aero is bidding to completely revolutionize advertising by making use of drone billboards.

The company's vision involves building massive 10-foot helium balloons that will be equipped with small propellers for added control. The balloons would be able to engage with audiences and viewers in ways that traditional, static two-dimensional billboards cannot.

What's great about these drone billboards is that they can safely be flown over crowds and even capture video of them for boosted interactivity.

This audacious project goes to show that drones have so many more applications beyond recreation, military, search-and-rescue and photography -- they can be used to better engage with audiences for the sake of advertising.
