NFL Embraces Drones for Pro Bowl Weekend Skills Challenge Contest

A DJI Inspire releases a football at the NFL Pro Bowl Skills Challenge

The NFL is making an effort to increase the interest in this year's Pro Bowl after it came under criticism the past few years. To do so, it added a skills competition on Thursday night, called "Pro Bowl Skills Showdown."

Dodgeball, power relay and precision passing are some of the events, and this year, the league added a new one: Drone Drop. The event consist in a drone holding a football during the flight and drop the ball to a receiver far down below.

It sounds like drones really are ready for primetime!
