“So, what would the average person want with a tiny spy drone the size of an insect? The Dragonfly comes equipped with high-definition cameras and can be operated with an iPhone.”
So, when you’re unloading the kids from the soccer match and all the groceries in the trunk what’s to stop the pedo up the street from flying one of those in your house to watch your kids undress, bathe and otherwise conduct their business?
Or watch your prepubescent kids swimming in their own fenced in back yard? Unlimited viewing time with no social constraints for staring at the ‘nubile’ 12yr olds.
Or your creepy ex who has a restraining order. And thinks you might be moving on with someone else?
Or your nosy neighbor who thinks you might own an illegal gun. Or wants pictures of your ‘prepper stash’?
Or the voyeur you work with who just wants video of you having sex.
LEOs can search your home for gun cases and/or ammo boxes now w/o your knowledge. Just fly one in the door as you’re leaving.
You can use it for good. Like to inspect hard to reach areas of your home. Or watch movements of rioters or brown shirts heading your way. Or check out that bump in the night without risking your own neck.
It’s a tool. Use it for good or evil - your choice.
Frankly, it would be wise to assume that most of these are already possible (except perhaps for the drone flying into your house) by government (at all levels) and by any person with a small bit of technical ability who has the interest/ambition.
This device just lowers the barriers to entry a bit - it doesn’t do anything that other devices don’t already do.
Note to self: Install Bug Zapper by front door.
