1115_thinkstockphotos-459240571 The Pope Now Has an Unmanned Aerial VehicleIn the wake of the recent earthquake in Nepal and subsequent relief efforts from unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), Pope Francis has been given a small UAV of his own.

According to a report from ANSA, children from a Jesuit school gifted the device – decked out in Vatican colors – to the Pope on April 30.

The organizers of the gifting said in a statement to ANSA that UAVs “proved useful” in the earthquake aftermath, including “check[ing] the condition of structures” and “bringing relief to people.”

They also said that the UAV is a representation of “the values of technology in the service of man.”
