So much for drones helping us to get in shape

Sometimes drones can motivate people to exercise and sometimes it works the other way around.

There was a great story out of Seoul, South Korea this week, site of the 2015 Computer-Human Interaction Conference. It was there that researchers from RMIT University in Australia shared the results of a study which found evidence that drones would be welcome companions for joggers and would help motivate people to get out and run. That may be true in Australia but I have feeling that drones would face a taller task trying to get most of us Americans off of our couches. In fact, I’d wager it would more likely be the other way around, with the drones picking up our couch potato ways.
