This footage is truly terrifying when you consider the prospect that should scientists transfer the technology to Beijing, or perhaps even the military, they may utilize the superior drone technology to target humans. Watch as the autonomous Chinese drone swarm flies through forest while hunting for humans.
A swarm of micro-drones maneuvered a thick bamboo forest in China without using GPS, avoiding trees, branches, and brush. The stunning film shows that these drones could one day be employed for search and rescue operations or even more sinister purposes, such as human hunts.
Chinese scientists from Zhejiang University produced a report and video of ten lightweight drones flying across a forest at high speeds. The drones’ technology independently traverses the optimum flight route using high-tech sensors.
In a document published Wednesday in the journal Science Robotics, lead author Xin Zhou stated that “multi-robot aerial systems are a symbol of future technology” citing science fiction movies such as Prometheus (2012), Ender’s Game (2013), Star Wars: Episode III (2005), and Blade Runner 2049 (2017), which “inspired” the research group.
