Mexican Technology Entrepreneur Gerardo Alton-Ortega, in what some say is a direct response to the building of a border wall between United States and Mexico, said he would use part of his current investments in new energy and renewable resources into drone manufacturing, people carrying drones that is. Even though he has not commented anything about his business plan many observers and news outlets think this is in direct response to Donald Trump´s unpopular wall. Immigrants have always found the way, but it looks like Alton-Ortega might be onto something and probably a very good return to his investment. People carrying drones are only on the first stages of development, many laws and regulations will be in place once this happens, but for desperate needs come desperate measures and if you are crossing over a border wall on a drone the last thing you will care about is regulations. Some in Mexico call this move genius, a way to deter the wall plans but even though Gerardo Alton-Ortega insists that plans of a “one person” carrying drones are part of his view of the future, many are not sure about that at this point in time.
