If you think the majority of uses of this particular thing will be ‘for good’ you haven’t been paying attention to the news cycle.

I’ll also opine this: The very FIRST time something like this is used to get video of someone like the the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge doing the nasty you had better bet the development of electronic bug spray will go into full overdrive. You can also bet that civilian use/posession of the same will be made illegal.

For $100 each the PTB’s can have hundreds of thousands of these and put one in each ‘suspected terrorist’s house. That would be your house btw. Posting on FR will be (and probably already is) a sign of terroristic intentions. Hope you’re OK with LEOs getting video of your daily activities without a warrant.

And just like you can use them to check on rioters coming your way (ears are good with this btw, i’ve been in social unrest before), the LEO’s can post them in your garage. You know, in case you put a gun in the trunk of your car. Or sort your recyclables properly. Or have a low flow head on your shower. Or a 5gal flush toilet. Or spank your kids.

It’s an arms race that will, ultimately, eliminate the usefulness of any firearms. The pursuit of which was the entire purpose of the war(s) in Iraq and Afghanistan. Peasants will lose this one. Big time. We lack multibillion dollar R&D budgets.

The ‘surveillance’ purpose will quickly morph into the ‘tactical elimination’ purpose. Your guns will be useless. Well, you could use them to club rabid dogs or snakes.

Not so fast. Open source the design and use a 3D printer to make them and they become cheap and ubiquitous. The next stage is developing defenses against them and the govt versions get much smaller, faster, smarter and expensive.

Lather, rinse, repeat (goto lather).

Why would I watch or care what the MSM news says about anything?
