I've seen footage of thse things before, flying in formation, etc.
I kinda think that humans are genetically predisposed to make weapons out of whatever they can. Every time we make a technological discovery we'll
weaponise it before we do anything even slightly useful with it.
These things could actually be used for good, but probably won't be. Even if the initial intention is good...which it most likely isn't, they'll still
end up being used to do bad. You;d be an idiot to deny that.
The stuff about the battery life I think is a lie, could these things not be solar powered in some way? Are they too small to take in enough solar
energy to maintain a full charge? Anyone clued up on this kinda stuff?
Even if the battery life thing is an issue, they'll be working hard on a solution and will probably find one. But I still think it's a lie, I think
they found ways to generate immense power ages ago they just don't want to share it yet.
They scare me. The people who operate these drones are so de-sensitised to what they are doing...kinda apt since most of them probably grew up playing
computer games. How much more.emotionally detached can you get? It's ugly, but it was bound to happen. This is just a sign of what's to come, this is
nothing. This is like the first mobile phone, there are many more to follow, each more better-er and sophisticated-er-er than the last.
The worst part of all is, imagine one of these things is being operated by, let's say a police officer in his own city, and he uses it to kill some
crazy arch-criminal who was up to all kinds of mischief...who's gonna point the finger at the operator of this thing, it's too easy to hide? This will
lead to trouble...it's hard enough trying to prove an officer assaulted you when there are witnesses who see the officer physically assault you...this
is a machine?!
Awful, but inevitable.
