Future of Drones: Light, Mobile, High Speed, Ground Movement Capable
November 11th, 2011
echnology buffs will no doubt find the following invention out of Japan impressive. It’s said to be the world’s first “spherical flying machine” aircraft ever invented (though we’re skeptical of that claim) and has the capabilities of revolutionizing State-sponsored surveillance.
We’re already familiar with military and police drone technology which can monitor and survey large areas with forward looking infrared, utilize face recognition and engage military and civilian targets with on-board weapons. With this new design, however, drone and micro-bot advancements can be taken to a whole new level of control and miniaturization.
We can only surmise that if we’ve been able to identify the host of military and policing applications, so too have the Pentagon and U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies (the sphere was actually developed by researchers at Japan’s Ministry of Defense).
