    *** MAYBE THE EGYPTIAN PYRAMIDS WERE BUILT & THOSE HUGE BOULDERS WERE STACKED UP BY ROBOTS LIKE THESE… BY THE THOUSANDS! ***

  39. FOX 狐 on November 23, 2021 at 11:00 am

    The down side is the flight time. In order to gain more flight time you need to increase the battery capacity, and with that you also increase the copter weigh.

    Thank god for nerds.

  41. Mobious Consulting on November 23, 2021 at 11:00 am

    I don’t think regulatory would like to see fully autonomous UAVs.

  42. The true love of JESUSCHRIST on November 23, 2021 at 11:03 am

    They run like mighty men. They climb the wall like warriors. They each march in his line, and they don’t swerve off course.
    Neither does one jostle another; They march everyone in his path, And they burst through the defenses, And don’t break ranks.
    They rush on the city. They run on the wall. They climb up into the houses. They enter in at the windows like thieves.

    Joel 2:7,8 & 9

    The biblical prophecy told thousands of years before is being fulfilled in front of our eyes. Seek the Lord for he is near. All this will be given into the hands of the upcoming dictator the antichrist and Bible says even though people want to die at those days they can’t for death will flee them.

    Repent and call upon the name of Jesus christ. For he is ever loving to forgive our sins and save us from the coming wrath. For Jesus Christ says:

    Behold, I come quickly. My reward is with me, to repay to each man according to his work.
    Revelation:22:12

  43. Shan Dani on November 23, 2021 at 11:05 am

    Vijay doesn’t tell us that, among other things, the robots will be used to surveil and control us.
