Can You Shoot Down Drones?
Rated 3.88 out of 5 stars based on 8 reviews.
Hits: 6

I know I sound like I’m wearing a tinfoil hat when I talk about emerging drone law, BUT THEY ARE COMING FOR US.

Robots that fly and spy on us are being put in the hands of private citizens. Drone regulations are being written by lobbyists for drone manufacturers and other companies. You’re going to wake up one day, and there’s going to be a drone outside your bedroom window writing you a ticket for sodomy.

I’m not the only one who knows what’s coming. Just take a look at this crazy, gun-toting New Jersey man who shot one down that was flying over his property…

 

CBS Philly and Popular Science have stories about “Johnny Dronehunter.” Russell J. Percenti (a.k.a. Johnny Dronehunter) has YouTube clips up of him shooting drones for target practice.

This week, Percenti was arrested for shooting down a drone that was flying over his property. Percenti was charged with Possession of a Weapon for an Unlawful Purpose and Criminal Mischief.

Drones - Natural Evolution, or Abomination?

Ask one technologist and he or she might say that lethal autonomous weapons — machines that can select and destroy targets without human intervention — are the next step in modern warfare, a natural evolution beyond today's remotely operated drones and unmanned ground vehicles. Others will decry such systems as an abomination and a threat to International Humanitarian Law (IHL), or the Law of Armed Conflict. The U.N. Human Rights Council has, for now, called for a moratorium on the ...

Meet Prospero, Aquarius and SW 6010: the robots changing modern farming

I remember reading a piece about farmers using drones, and I must say I was impressed. For farmers, the transition from manned aircraft to drones is an easy choice to make. Not only are they much cheaper, but they also provide imaging tools, which can be used for detecting a variety of crop-related issues, ranging from problems with irrigation to measuring chlorophyll levels in plants. So today I want to talk about the next step in agri-tech evolution: robots. Although most modern fa...
