    Saw this on a Bloomberg video feed this morning:

    http://www.bloomberg.com/video/meet-the ... 2sMpw.html

    I know the company is trying to raise awareness of how fast technology is progressing ahead of legislation, law enforcement, etc., but I think this demonstration, plus the constant use of the word "drone" will end up restricting our hobby in many ways.

    The problem doesn't come so much from the demonstration as it does from the folks who won't watch the entire video, or never hear the discussion that accompanies it ... and then go off half cocked. Like just about everything in this world, it can used for good or evil.

    Dumb and impractical. Just a publicity farce.

    The only regulation we need is against a tyrannical govt. pointing drones as law-abiding citizens.

    Where does he get off christening himself the arbiter of good vs bad technology? An EMP drone? Are you kidding me?

    This whole piece is an example of tech reporting at its worst. This guy should have never been given any air time.

    (Bloomberg, I guess) :roll:

    What a douche.

    Still, interesting find & thanks for sharing.

    +1 indeed. The dude got someone's invention and stuck it on someone's else's invention and played it off like he invented it.

    Great example of how to use fear to get press. These guys should do a lot more product testing. On themselves. Repeatedly. Maybe it'll knock some sense into them.
