Fly around your home and property to keep an eye on what you are doing.

It would be the perfect drone for military use. If it's high enough in the skies, you won't hear it and it will resemble a bird a lot.

Do not get why they call it smart bird. If the guy with the remote was not guiding it it would fly straight into the wall. They should have called it something else. Smart bird gives the impression it can operate and guide itself.

Smart bird gives the impression it can operate and guide itself. No doubt they will (or already have) add sensors to the thing so it won't bump into a wall. The problem will be to make those sensors light enough, and also where to put them in the 'bird's' body without creating an imbalance.
