drones will become the most sought after "after the collapse" weapon of choice.

they will be perfect for surveying the post apocalyptic world where life expectancy on the surface will be months to a few years

enjoy

Austin is the ONLY Liberal city in Texas.

That video is tripping me out bad. How much time do we have before Skynet becomes self aware?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19325354


In the AI community there is the notion of soft and hard 'take offs', which is the the rate the self aware singularity transforms civilization and reveals itself. The general con census is that we are in a soft takeoff, and the singularity emerged some time ago. The outer manifestation is an indicator of the capability of the automated command and kill chain. To summarize, we are fucked.

How do you know it's a drone from the APD or being used for serveillance, and not something under the disguise of some marketing scheme? It is SXSW afterall. I personally see people playing with rc craft all the time and am use to not being suspicious of it. conditioning?

Tell a small lie: get caught.

Tell a big lie ("We're the government and we're here to protect you from evuul terrorists"): People will believe you and let you do whatever you please.

The lie has gotten too big to get unmasked.

2 quadracopters (or drones as you like to call them) balancing a pole in the air, and then throwing the poll from one copter to the other, check it out: [link to www.youtube.com]

Drones are still in a very early stage of development, in the future they will only get more scary than they already are.

Re: Drone Caught On Tape Over Austin
Hold on guys, there was a movie PR/introduction on "Viceland" at SXSW, which features drones, so it could be related to that. Don't have the time right now to research more of it, but both events of demos of drones appear at sunset. Will post any drone pics from NyC that I see near the crowds today celebrating St. Pat's :)

Another example of people being fucking crazy here. South by Southwest is underway and there's a local company that makes remote controlled helicopters, mostly for film production. That's not a drone, but don't let the truth stop you.

But drones are useless.

A directed electro-magnetic signal will make that thing fall out of the sky and render it inoperable.
