Has anyone realized that the "official secret act" allows for the fiction described in Ayn Rand's 'Atlas Shrugged' to become a reality?


Who is John Galt!

Death by drone takes to the skies.

Little stars of death raining down upon thee.




A JAPANESE defence researcher has invented a spherical observation drone that can fly down narrow alleys, hover on the spot, take off vertically and bounce along the ground.

About the size of a beachball and jet black, the remote-controlled Spherical Air Vehicle resembles a tiny Death Star from the Star Wars movies but has a more benign purpose - to transmit live images from a video camera.




Think of the possiblilites with this little bugger.  Smaller ones with little needles on them.  Death Balls! 


How about some inflatable drones




Look!  Drones!


Drones, everywhere!

Drones are great, but not when someone is doing something bad with one, like dropping contraband into a prison or flying into restricted airspace. We've got an answer.

Conceivable imagination at work.

Drone Carrier Naval Ship Designs

Drone carrier naval ships have been designed, but so far none appear to have been deployed. The UXV Combatant is a concept warship designed by BVT Surface Fleet (now BAE Systems Surface Ships), which was displayed at the Defence Security and Equipment International (DSEi) in 2007. If built it would be expected to displace approximately 8,000 tonnes and "launch, operate and recover large numbers of small unmanned vehicles for extended periods, the UXV plays the role of mother ship - a permanent base and control centre for the futuristic unmanned land, sea and air vehicles before, during and on completion of their missions".

Officials from the United States military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, have expressed interest in developing a flying aircraft carrier that can launch a fleet of unmanned drones.
Fans of the movie, “The Avengers”, may remember a flying aircraft carrier.
Now, officials from the United States military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, have expressed interest in developing their own flying aircraft carrier that can launch a fleet of drones.

Russia Building Nuclear-Armed Drone Submarine
“The Kanyon represents another example of Russia’s aggressive and innovative approach to the development of military capabilities against U.S. and Western interests,” said Jack Caravelli, a former CIA analyst who specialized in Soviet and Russian affairs.
“The possible yield of the warhead, in the megaton class, clearly is an attempt to inflict catastrophic damage against U.S. or European naval facilities or coastal cities,” he added. “Nations vote with their resources, and the Kanyon, along with an expanding number of other military modernization programs, indicates the priority Vladimir Putin places on military preparedness against the West.”
The nuclear drone submarine is further evidence of what officials say is an aggressive strategic nuclear forces modernization under President Vladimir Putin. The building is taking place as the Obama administration has sought to reduce the role of nuclear arms in U.S. defenses and to rely on a smaller nuclear force for deterrence.
Officials familiar with details of the Kanyon program said the weapon is envisioned as an autonomous submarine strike vehicle armed with a nuclear warhead ranging in size to “tens” of megatons in yield. A blast created by a nuclear weapon that size would create massive damage over wide areas.

The first insect-like robot that can both fly and swim is creating a buzz of excitement in the robotics field.
Takes fishing to a whole new level.
