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.
