Futuristic Tech

Wicked awesome.

Killer hornet drones.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israel is using nanotechnology to try to create a robot no bigger than a hornet that would be able to chase, photograph and kill its targets, an Israeli newspaper reported on Friday.

The flying robot, nicknamed the "bionic hornet", would be able to navigate its way down narrow alleyways to target otherwise unreachable enemies such as rocket launchers, the daily Yedioth Ahronoth said.

To sum up: Nanotech flying robots? Within the realm of possibility.
Flying cars? Go fish.

It would be sweet if some variant of this idea made its way into civvy life somehow. A city police force would undoubtedly find it useful.

I'm a little worried about Hezbollah's crack scientific research team stumbling upon theultimate counterweapon, though.
