Closing Thought–22Jun18

I was watching an episode of “Elementary” about a murder committed by a drone….there was even these nano drones that were used to spy on Holmes….as small as a mosquito…..made me think that drones are getting smaller but how small?

FLIR Systems Inc. will supply the Army with its next-generation nano drone, the company recently announced.

A $2.6 million order has been made for the first shipment of the Black Hornet 3 as part of the Soldier Borne Sensor program.

The drone took seven years to develop, Ole Aguirre, FLIR director of unmanned aerial systems strategy and government affairs, said June 7 in an interview.

The system weighs only 32 grams, and can fly at speeds up to 21 kilometers per hour for up to 2 kilometers, he said.

Was this art imitating life?

So if you are outside and hear a mosquito in your ear it might be Big Brother targeting you for some reason or another.

Time for me to start my weekend….going to live it up since I must go back to the hospital next week for yet another procedure…..

  1. Nano Drones? They will make them tiny enough to fly inside you one day, I have no doubt. Like the craft in the film ‘Fantastic Voyage’ (1966).
    Best wishes, Pete.
