Drone Designed To ‘Hunt And Kill People’ Built In Hours By Scientists For Fun

Scientists issued a warning in March after it took two of them just a few hours to turn a commercially available drone into an artificially intelligent massacre machine.

Entrepreneur and engineer Linus Wenus shared an extensive post on Twitter about his and his friend, Robert Lukoszko’s work on the drone, which they developed “as a game” at first. “I thought it would be fun to build a drone that chases you around as a game. It just uses an AI object detection model to find people in the frame, and then the drone is programmed to fly towards this at full speed as soon as it detects someone,” he wrote to his followers.

Within a few hours, the two men realized they could attach an explosive payload to the drone and fly it wherever they wanted. “This literally took just a few hours to build, and made me realize how scary it is. You could easily strap a small amount of explosives on these and let 100’s of them fly around. We check for bombs and guns but THERE ARE NO ANTI-DRONE SYSTEMS FOR BIG EVENTS & PUBLIC SPACES YET,” he continued.

“I was also able to add face recognition to it, and only make it attack someone it knew who was, it could easily identify the person from 10 meters distance,” Wenus claimed.

Wenus went so far as to bet that “we will see some sort of terror attack using this type of tech within the next few years,” he wrote. “You still need some technical knowledge to build this now, but it becomes easier and easier.” (RELATED: Nothing Says End Stage Dystopian Nightmare Like The Masked Servant Class Stooping Over To Adjust Hillary Clinton’s Gown On The Red Carpet)

Well, if you weren’t already terrified of leaving your home in 2024, you should be now! And what happens if law enforcement or the military start employing some type of tactic like this in their work? We just casually rolled in some type of bizarro Marshall law in New York City under the pretense of fighting statistically lower crime rates, so is an eventual drone army the next step in our dystopian nightmare?

Let us pray that the terrorists we’ve let into the country over our open borders don’t figure out how to make something like this. Even if Wenus’ claims are overinflated, there’s no scientific reason this type of technology can’t exist.
