For example, Houston, TX is the most prominent drone city in the country, with more than 3,000 registered drones in the metropolitan area.

One bride and groom decided to do away with the “take home a centerpiece” giveaway at their wedding, and instead gifted attendees (and each other) with a technologically savvy wedding gift: an immortalization of their nuptials in virtual reality.
