Random bots for hire, usually of the airborne variety, ranging in scale from mid-size drones to atomically-small GPS-guided nanobots.
Floaters are most often used for video surveillance and the delivery of messages, objects and gifts.
Gift bots are popular and can be programmed to include a full-immersion, audio-visual virtual reality experience (such as seeing starscapes from space or flying over the worlds largest waterfall).
Surveillance floaters are most commonly hired by employers, parents and corporate and government spies. Recent advances in security are making it more difficult for surveillance floaters to be used for covert or nefarious purposes.
In most municipalities, children under 17 are prohibited from hiring floaters.
