인간의 DNA를 채집하고 살상하는 모기 로봇!
아래의 사진은 얼핏 보면 꼭 모기처럼 보이지만 실은 미국에서 개발된 인명살상용 전투기계인 '날으는 드론'입니다.
주로 망가진 도시에서 독립 마약상이나 무기거래상, 대마재배 공급자를 단속하는데 동원된다고 합니다. 보기에는 작아보여도 드론 폭격기처럼 원격조종이 되고, 카메라와 도청장치를 갖춘 무시무시한 빅브라더 감시장치입니다. 미국정부가 이미 대량 생산에 들어갔다고 합니다.
또한 인간의 DNA 채집도 가능하고 범죄 용의자 추적용 마이크로칩을 피부안에 박아넣어서 그 사람이 어딜 가든지 그 소재지를 피부속의 GPS 장치를 통해 자동보고하게끔 되어 있다고 합니다.
옷에 슬며시 붙어있으면서 어디든 따라다니기도 합니다. 물론 원격지에서 감시자들은 모든 상황을 카메라와 도청기로 다 들으면서 추적할 수 있습니다.
이런 기계가 지배자들의 감시·통제도구로 악용된다면 정말 상상만 해도 끔찍하기 짝이 없습니다. 이제 우리는 무엇을 해야 할까요?
US Develops Robot Mosquito Spy Drones
July 30, 2012
Reports indicate that the US military has poured huge sums of money into surveillance drone miniaturization and is developing micro aircraft which now come in a swarm of bug-sized flying spies.

According to various internet sources, a team of researchers at the Johns Hopkins University in conjunction with the US Air Force Office of Scientific Research at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Arlington, Virginia, is helping develop what they are calling a micro aerial vehicle (MAV) that will undertake various espionage tasks.
The robotic insect can effortlessly infiltrate urban areas, where dense concentrations of buildings and people, along with unpredictable winds and other obstacles make it impractical.
It can be controlled from a great distance and is equipped with a camera and a built-in microphone.
The new device has the capability to land precisely on human skin, use its super-micron sized needle to take DNA samples and fly off again at speed. All people feel is the pain of a mosquito bite without the burning sensation and the swelling of course.
The hard-to-detect surveillance drone can also inject a micro radio frequency identification (RFID) tracking device right under skin, and can be used to inject toxins into enemies during wars.
As early as in 2007, the US government was accused of secretly developing robotic insect spies when anti-war protesters in the United States saw some flying objects similar to dragonflies or little helicopters hovering above them.
The US is not alone in miniaturizing drones that imitate nature: France, the Netherlands and Israel are also developing similar devices.
France has developed flapping wing bio-inspired micro drones. The Netherlands BioMAV (Biologically Inspired AI for Micro Aerial Vehicles) has also built Parrot AR drones.
Meanwhile, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) has produced a butterfly-shaped drone, weighing just 20 grams, which can gather intelligence inside buildings.
The insect drone, with its 0.15-gram camera and memory card, is managed remotely with a special helmet. Putting on the helmet, the operator finds themselves in the “butterfly’s cockpit” and virtually sees what the butterfly sees in real time.
