What If the Military Deployed a Million Nano Drones?

Do you ever get the feeling you’re being watched? What if every move you make is recorded? You didn’t see any security cameras, and that’s the point.What if the military deployed a million nano drones? Insect-sized surveillance robots capable of watching your every move.What kind of missions would they perform? Would it make the world safer? Or start a dystopian nightmare?

    what if there was only one company in the world how much would be thath company earning ?

    You don’t even need nanotechnology. They are already watching AND listening to you. You can leave your house without being on camera. Your phone, tv, alexa, cortana, google, and all the other tech. That’s not even mentioning all the cameras they have up throughout the city. And if you think your phones not listening, have you ever had a conversation with someone and then saw an ad for the exact same thing you were just talking about?

    What if someone used these drones to become essentially invulnerable to physical damage?

    *NANOMACHINES, SON!*

    They don’t want drones to surveillance the people. They already doing it with our smartphones and other electronic things.

    I always thought nano drones were something you’d only see in a Transformers movie… until NOW.

  11. Jaya Kumar on May 13, 2021 at 2:38 am

  14. Tyrany Killer on May 13, 2021 at 2:41 am

    Sounds like an accomplished hacker could um end this hypothetical drone program with a keystroke.
