When you consider the various uses of drone technology elsewhere in the world—spying, assassinations, indiscriminate bombings—beer delivery seems pretty tame.
Drones are supposed to be used to assassinate targets when they pose a "continuing and imminent" threat.
Can't wait to live in a world that looks like a scene from Minority Report, complete with UAV's swarming above my neighborhood with food delivery orders.
Last July, off the coast of California, the Navy successfully shot a small drone out of the sky with a laser cannon on the back of the USS Ponce.
Well, not quite, but MIT, following their motto of "Let's Build Scary Weapons Technology Because It's Kinda Neat," is working on a way to make flying combat drones more autonomous and able to follow their target inside buildings.
