I love how the tech industry is herping and derping their way to glory on this one while the FAA is requiring everything over 55lbs to have a tail number. Meanwhile FAR Part 103 basically says "keep it over an empty field or license it like a helicopter" and the same people who decry how dangerous motorcycles are envision a Utopian future where Uber pilots spirit you to the grocery store by lofting you over condos.

VCs can't change physics and the proliferation of UAVs has led to the proliferation of regulation. You can build it but no one will come.
