Hunting From The Comfort Of Your Own Home

September 22, 2012 in Daily Bulletin, Signature

Jakob Schiller reported on an idea that made the tacocopter look tame in comparison:

  • In the future you could send out a drone aircraft to go hunting, shoot a wild animal, and then bring it back for dinner.
  • You could control it through a remote control that provides a video feed from a camera on the drone. Or with advanced enough AI, the drone could simply hunt without human direction.
  • While the inventor has no plans to actually manufacture the aircraft, a vibrant DIY drone community might be inspired by the idea and take things into their own hands.
