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.
