Gun-toting drone aims and fires in mid-air

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

A US technology firm has developed a drone that is able to aim and fire at enemies while flying in mid-air.

The Tikad drone, developed by Duke Robotics, is armed with a machine-gun and a grenade launcher.

The gun can be fired only by remote control, and is designed to reduce military casualties by cutting the number of ground troops required.

But campaigners warn that in the wrong hands, it will make it easier to kill innocent people.

This is a great advance for civilisation. Funny how these geniuses never have any trouble thinking up improved ways to kill people - at little or no risk to yourself!

From the article... "But campaigners warn that in the wrong hands, it will make it easier to kill innocent people."  A knife and fork in the wrong hands makes it easier to kill people.

Better the "good guys" have the tech and ideas first.

Good Guys? An even better New Improved way for the Good Guys to kill people without needing to put themselves at any risk whatsoever? Yeah, ********in' heroic. Hollywood will be making movies about them in years to come.

Its an effective weapon the military will definitely utilize. Eventually it will be common place on both sides. Just a matter of time

Yup, there are a lot of things covered by the International Patent Co-operation Treaty, alongside caveats of National laws that prohibit the distribution of civil defence / military adaptations like the boba-fett helmets. There are also eminent domain caveats in the USA that state should a person lack the power to file a patent of national interest the state would do the filing on behalf of the person and pay 10% of the value of the patent, with all rights revoked ofc. It's much better than being on campus.
