Rise of the Drones - Page 3
Is it natural evolution or some kind of frightening maturation of technology? Unmanned aircraft pinpointing terrorist leaders and killing them one by one with hellfire missiles. A President who has a kill list to determine who lives and dies. A robotic helicopter hunting pirates in the Indian Ocean. These things really should be associated with science-fiction horror films, but they have become reality in the early 21st century. Drones are now in great demand, with new production lines opening up in China, Israel, Russia and the UK. They hunt the Pakistani tribal regions day and night using infra-red cameras and advanced sensors, powerful enough to identify somebody’s facial expressions from 30,000 feet. They are a psychologically devastating weapon. Johnny Depp will run for his life if they decide to include a robotic helicopter in the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
