Basics You might not realise, but real life is a game of strategy. Most importantly, successful players put their time into the right things. Childhood Life begins when you’re assigned a random character and circumstances: The first 15 years or so of life are just tutorial missions, which suck.

Along with the Cyclodrone, the designers suggested that drones could be used to help firefighters find victims in burning buildings (and even automatically lead those victims to safety). It might take a little while before all of the ideas could actually be produced. The Cyclodrone could be made today, but would be tricky for longer rides, since the battery would need frequent recharging.
