Sony tests 'superfast' commercial drone – BBC News

This “superfast” drone could fly from London to Paris in about two hours. Footage of a prototype superfast drone being developed by Sony has been posted online. A test flight by Aerosense – a joint-venture created by Sony and the robotics firm ZMP – shows the plane-shaped drone taking off vertically. The firm says it can reach a top speed of 106mph (170km/h), more than twice as fast as other commercial drones. It is designed to carry objects and could be used in industrial applications as soon as next year. But one expert has raised safety concerns.

    The corrupt and incompetent U.K government will use this flying toy as a reason to ban flying toys. The BBC is one of the biased mouth piece for the U. K government. This is propaganda video to justify new laws coming in the future to regulate and destroy the free market of flying toys.  The U.K government is a regime that wants to control everything.   In U.K, You must purchase a television license if you want to watch television in your home. This law is an infringement personal privacy  and freedom.

    might also be used in terrorist attack – fly in fast, drop some chemically detonate bomb and fly back. So long as phone system is not cut-off, it is almost impossible to prevent

    Yeah, the world will convert to special Sony plugs and similar crap and have to put up with law suits as routine to prop up Sony’s archaic, (shit) middle-man profit-model.
    Sony is devoid of good conscience and deserves to go the way of the dinosaurs.
