Nobody is Safe Anymore. No One, Nowhere.
It's the latest, greatest thing in the Pentagon's toybox - MAVs. Micro Air Vehicles like those shown in the following video already exist and they could take your last shreds of privacy. They could even take your life.
And here's the civilian version of the Dragonfly MAV developed for the U.S. Air Force. You can buy your own, limited performance, civilian version starting at a hundred bucks. The Dragonfly makers will even sell you your own "swarm."
What the military is doing is to develop better power, communications and control systems for their MAVs. The civilian stuff relies on batteries that last just several minutes. The military technology can operate for several days.
