Ben Popper, Communications at DJI, spoke at Hardwired in November 2018. He shared some fascinating examples of how drones (from DJI and others) are enabling explorers, rescuers, photographers, businesses, and others to push the physical boundaries of the frontiers. Whether they’re mapping mine shafts, monitoring volcanoes, or exploring ice caves, drones are allowing humans unprecedented access and insights into places we never imagined going.


Hardwired NYC is a monthly event in New York covering the intersection of hardware and software (Internet of Things, 3D printing, robotics, etc.), hosted by Matt Turck, partner at FirstMark Capital.
