If you feel something crawling on your neck, it might be a wasp or a bee. Or it might be something much more dangerous.
Israel is developing a robot the size of a hornet to attack terrorists. And although the prototype will not fly for three years, killer Micro Air Vehicles, or MAVs, are much closer than that.
British Special Forces already use 6-inch MAV aircraft called WASPs for reconnaissance in Afghanistan. The $3,000 WASP is operated with a Gameboy-style controller and is nearly silent, so it can get very close without being detected. A new development will reportedly see the WASP fitted with a C4 explosive warhead for kamikaze attacks on snipers. One newspaper dubbed it "The Talibanator."Read the rest here.
Man this story really BUGS me! Leave it to the Israelis to think of another way to aggravate their neighbors with this latest infestation.
Wheres the Bugman to exterminate this latest infestation, oh wait he's been demoted to talk show appearances exterminating the truth.
Instead of using robot bugs to beat up real bugs, they use them for war instead, duh!
Remember the next time you swat a fly, it might be a spy.
