I could possibly see that happening if its possible to secure the bots transactions but the first militarized drone I see hovering or rolling over my
property is a problem. Now I dont care if the military or public uses drones for defense or peaceful purposes, but the last thing anyone wants to see
is armed drones being used for attacks. Imagine some pissed foreign student, (because apparently its all the damn rage to get a visa and attack my
homeland and get a free education in chemistry and engineering while their at it) using a "drone" to attack our government buildings or monetary
system, a grocery store or even just a large gathering. Or a smart programmer who figures out a way to attach some sort of data hack to something
mobile/ remote controlled. How would you even find those people? Howabout a drone that just sits and gathers transmitted data from microchips in your
wallpaper? Hmm? scary enough?
When i say all this Im trying to think of everyone here in my country, that means everyone, hobbyists, military, public, security agencies and
government alike because they're all my people. I dont want drones being used harmfully on any body.
A big slap in the face is actually to hobbyists. because those people are using these things for fun and harmless entertainment. imagine building a
model helicopter with your kids and dropping it on the ground so you two can have some fun flying it around your yard, the next thing you know you got
pd pulling up asking you for an operators license or the dhs putting you on some suspected terrorist list just because you own a few toys. Can you see
how far that can go? Folks do realise that people are accidently shot because some stuff looks so real that it passes for a weapon right?
And yea you know what? Privacy, lets talk about privacy for second. The government already has that whole surveillance thing happening, and you cant
even fly without security checking your damn nutsack as it is, thats on top of the current law enforcement patrolling the streets 24/7. Why in sam
hell would anyone want to lose any more privacy than they already have? I mean damn , why not just set up cameras in peoples #ing homes so they can
watch you banging your old lady at night. Oh I forgot, people already do this # voluntarily with smartphones, ipads, microphones, cams and macs then
upload all their privacy willingly and call it social networking. Has the world lost its mind?... seriously.
Then you got the press who might argue that visual or audio mounted drones are only being used for the news and claim freedom of the press and all
that. Watch one of those news reports where they are in a helicopter zooming into peoples yards n #. Its out there. Should we even say paparazi? Now
imagine drones all over the country (because they're smaller and cheaper to make) doing the same damn thing. And what about the law who can already
mount sensors to aerial equipment. Man? Thats all an aerial SEARCH.
Do you guys see what Im getting at here? #s already complicated and screwed up as it is. Life cant be this full of # my people. Who would want to live
like this? I demand that peoples rights, privacy and well being are protected dammit.
sorry if I went off topic anywhere. It happens.
It might be cool to have a drone deliver pizza though. lol I cant lie.
