Yeah, we’re doomed. Remember those cool Quadrocopter Manhacks created by the GRASP Lab at U. Penn? Well it’s getting worse: now these things can react to objects thrown in their path and fly around them autonomously. They can even right themselves after “extreme initial conditions” which means when you bat them out of the way they won’t fall down or fail but instead prepare themselves to attack again.
We are so surprisingly dead when these things get smart that most of us will go in our sleep, our necks filled with poison by mosquito-quiet quadrotors with need-tipped proboscii.
