Look Up and Smile: The Drone You See May Be Your Last

Update on my Monday February 15 blog "Look Up and Smile":
This weeks Newsweek Magazine has an article on the flip side of Drone Airplane technology entitled: Defending Against Drones.

How our new favorite weapon in the war on terror could soon be turned against us!
For less than $50,000 a few amatures could shut down Mahattan, says a robotics expert.

The article was written by P.W. Singer who is the director of the 21st Century Defense Initiative at the Brookings Institution and the author of Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century.

A rudimentary technology has been around. I'd hate to get chased by
this thing ...heck, a little shoe bomber stuff and an onboard camera and I'd run like heck!
