So they has been a lot of talk about drones lately. And the implications these eyes-in-the-sky will have on our privacy, etc.
Well the REAL drones we need to worry about aren't getting nearly enough attention, and I've been trying to explain for a while. The real menaces
are not the big predator or reaper drones, there Micro Drones.
Article shows a picture of what I'm talking about. These drones are no bigger than a common house fly. You would have no way of knowing they are even
there. Yet they can fly into your house, sit on a wall and watch and listen to anything going on.
As the article states, in 2007, these insect drones were deployed to spy on anti-war protesters in America. And they have also been used at nuclear
facilities in Iran.
Maybe I'm paranoid but a tiny mosquito drone seems like it has the potential to do far more to erode privacy than a big predator drone.
Just image if police used these drones instead of "informants" and such. The possibilities are endless.
