I missed this from a few months ago.
I can't say that I'm pleased about this at all. I'd go so far as to say that an Open Source hardware/software drone design effort, based on RC controls, AR weaponry, IP communications/control with IPSec encryption/authentication might attract some interesting talent. This strikes me as something that would easily fit a distributed development/low cost/devolved authority model.
Or the Department of Homeland Security maybe should back off of the domestic drone thing. It's not putting me at all in my comfort zone, especially with Presidential "Kill Lists".
Holy cow, the pelt of my Wookie Suit just grew three inches.
