The main I will mention is Drone
First of all, drones were around long before 2010, but this was the decade when they really took off, literally. Suddenly, they were under Christmas trees and in even in stockings. Now, a range of drones is available—from super high-tech models like the DJI Mavic Pro to the small, dinky spinners you can find on Amazon for $5.
Their prevalence proved to be a challenge for several industries. Drones have shut down airports and even halted firefighting efforts across the West. With great power comes great responsibility. Regulators are now tightening restrictions, which could make it more difficult to own and operate the flying machines.
Above all, From clicking pictures via drone camera to zipline drones have certainly changed our lives big time.

Likewise, Drones have now become a part of our day by day life. The device, as changed the way we look at our surroundings by giving an all-new angle for viewing. DJI’s Phantom, which first made its entry in 2013, is the best example for drones in modern society. (Source: Wikimedia Commons)
