  • Cool I just hope they use it for good things, not just for taking away more of our freedoms.

  • I don't know if I'd call it fascinating minne ... but it definitely is interesting. Wonder if the little buggers can be swatted with a conventional flyswatter, and if we do, how much would it end up costing us if they caught us lol! Personally, I think I'd have fun with them. Target practice ...

    Do they only do anti-war stuff, or are these things fluttering around all over the place?

  • Well, I can see the potential for both good and bad uses, but they aren't big enough to defend themselves. So, that tends to leave us able to swat them.

  • My husband and I were talking about these not too long ago. I ask him about them being used on "we the people"...his reply..."you're a smart woman, what do you think"....so I guess that answered that.

    I think it is great IF it is used for good things...could save lives. I think though it is just one more tool they govt has to keep us in check. We no longer have the luxury of "hiding" if everything hits the fan. We can be found anywhere.....imho that is very scary.

  • "The CIA secretly developed a petrol-powered dragonfly drone back in the 1970s but the "insectothopter" was considered a failure as it couldn't handle crosswinds.

    The CIA refused to discuss its subsequent work but it is known that the Defence Department has been funding research into inserting computer chips into moth pupae to create "cyborg moths" whose flight muscles can be controlled remotely. "
