Spy Flies Buzz Washington

 

The Washington Post has reported robotic-looking dragonflies being used as spies at political events in New York. Both government and private agencies have openly admitted their desire for the spy technology.

One New York anti-war protester told reporters “They looked kind of like dragonflies or little helicopters," a Washington lawyer told the Washington Post “They were large for dragonflies. I thought, 'Is that mechanical, or is that alive?'"

The robo-spies are expected to be used to track suspects, guide missiles or find trapped survivors in building rubble.

Cool technology, sad that it's being used to spy on people though.

  the  
 
agency has noted they had an interest in R/C dragon flies for spy warefare back in the 70's and 60's but i guess cant be pulled off till now. the homing becon function was displayed in that navy commerical. a robot fly lands on the guard's left shoulder at a enemy base and the next scene is a goddamn cruise missle exiting the surface of the ocean as the sub keeps moving. its part of the aegis system.

  Do you get fined if you swat one?  
 
Just curious since I doubt they are clearly marked.

  It would be fun  
 
to swat them with a tennis racket. ;)
