My prediction is that Drones and drone giveaways will be big at Dreamforce 2014 this year. I’ll be there with my DJI Phantom Vision 2+ flying over the Moscone Center, taking video and photos. Hopefully not crashing it into anything. I can’t say the photos will be more exciting than when I flew the drone over the Roman Coliseum, but it should be very interesting.
Meanwhile, I’m starting to see a trend of people giving away drones at Dreamforce:
- I just got an email from the guys over at Tacticle that they’re giving away a Phantom 2 Vision+ Quadcopter to one lucky winner at their booth.
- My friends at InsideSales.com are giving away a drone to every sales manager who comes buy and gets a demo of their product. Very cool, Ken. It’s not likely to be the top of the line on that Tactile is handing out, but what the heck.
- Salesforce themselves are giving away 10 drones at the Salesforce1 platform keynote Wednesday, Oct. 15 at2:00pm in Moscone South.
- Twitter is going to be giving away a drone to “the best hack project incorporating Twitter”.
And I will absolutely be not featuring DroneForce(TM) as part of the extravaganza:
