It Looks Like An Insect, But Look Twice

Tiny UAV, Made To Spy?

Look out, those insects you're swatting just might be miniature UAVs with cameras photographing your every activity.

A Dutch company DelFly, has developed the DelFly II that weighs just 16.04 grams, can fly for 15 minutes at 30 mph or can hover for eight minutes, and has vision-based stabilization for its onboard camera snooping, according to Gizmodo.com

While government agencies are not admitting to using such things, you can see how this hovering electro-insect with a camera on board might come in handy for eavesdropping.

Imagine this technology miniaturized even further; its makers are now developing the DelFly Nano with a wingspan of just two inches, making it nearly invisible.

Naturally, the technology may come in handy for surveillance. In fact, it would, apparently, confirm suspicions expressed recently by groups protesting America's current war in Iraq... who say they've already seen such devices in action.
