“Work smarter, not harder” should be everyone’s mantra. Marek Baczynski certainly abides by it. Why else would he spend hours of trial and error figuring out how to get a drone to change a lightbulb? We can finally add ladders to the list of things robots will eventually replace.

After spending an entire day trying to get a slightly modified Eachine E30W drone to unscrew a light bulb and then screw a replacement back into the socket, Marek, and his pilot Sven, eventually switched to a Syma X5C-1 which got the job done in about ten minutes. Now let’s hope they move on to finding a drone that can take out the garbage, fold laundry, and shovel snow.
