Could your next car come with a companion drone? Renault think so

The Renault Kwid concept car comes with its very own companion drone that can be piloted while driving (!) or sent on an auto-pilot flight accompanying your car.

Renault claim it could be useful for checking for traffic or obstacles up ahead, or for taking photos of landscapes and scenery as you drive along.

If this became a reality, how long would it be before the drone was programmed to automatically shadow your car at just the right height and distance behind to allow you to make Grand Theft Auto (think any driving simulation game) style videos of your real world driving?

From there its only a small step to being able to make your entire windshield a video display showing your own driving as viewed from the drone, making real world driving essentially look the same as a simulated game.
