Criminals and Terrorists Can Fly Drones Too

Marc Goodman, who did an excellent TED talk about future crimes, wrote an eye-opener in Time.

Flying robots open up new opportunities for crime. Camera-equipped drones can and will be used for everything from the theft of industrial secrets to voyeurism by creepy neighborhood Peeping Toms.

Of course we know this, criminals are always one step ahead of the government. But to read it in detail, to know that a sub-marine can 1,800 kilos of cocaine more than 1,000 miles without refueling is too much. Some time ago I hear that there are more private drones than official ones.

We are being watched and it’s not only the government.
