Kids like power and cool things.
Can we imagine personal hoverbots/drones on the street in 10, 20, or 30 years? What types of uses and capabilities will consumer drones offer in the years ahead? Micro-drones, UAVs, nano quadcopters, octocopters, nano-drones, etc. Whatever they end up being popularly called, how will they change our daily lives?
Check out these examples of what's already out there. Truly inspiring.

July '12 Update:
Browsing a Barnes & Noble in Florida, I spotted the "Parrot AR.Drone" from the first video. If these are in B&N in mid-2012, then can you imagine what might be available in 10-20 years?
