Amazon’s indoor camera drone is ready to fly around your house

Next up: cameras. Amazon's crazy indoor, flying drone camera—the ambiguously named "Ring Always Home Cam"—is actually for sale now in the US. This was announced a full year ago, but now it's available "exclusively by invitation" for $249.99. This is a "Day 1 Edition" (read: a beta product). So Amazon isn't letting just anyone buy it. You can request an invitation to give Amazon money on the product page.

In case you've not had enough dystopian future products:

    Anything that flies in my house gets sprayed and swatted. I don't need any pests in my home.

    I want to do the reverse -- there is a big paper wasp nest in a tree, about 30 feet (9m) above my back yard. I'm looking for a friendly drone owner who is willing to use their drone to chop a hole in that wasp nest, and generally annoy the wasps until they move elsewhere.

    Not a new idea, there are a few YT videos of this. The drone props smash a lot of wasps and the drone needs to be cleaned off (carefully--the venom may still be active!) once the job is done.
