Nov. 24 is Thanksgiving in the US—a day fraught with stress over cooking, conversing with politically diverse family members, and having to watch hours and hours of football while fighting back a tryptophan hangover. But what if the power of modern technology could cut out at least some of that hassle? Autel Robotics, a very orange drone company based in Shenzhen, China, thinks it might have the answer: Use a drone to do all the cooking for you. (Chainmail glove sold separately.)

Drones are getting safer and smaller every day, and while many of them can be used to take truly stunning photos and videos, it seems they’re still a pretty terrible kitchen tool.
