"Pars was almost 50 seconds faster than a human lifeguard."


Yeah, but that's only because Israel wasn't firing missiles at it.

I'm sure they'll come up with a model that will drop stones on women for daring to wear revealing bathing suits on the beach.

Seems handy.  Not really anything new there, but a pretty good use of existing technology.

Yep.

And it means that The Hoff can still work the beach at Malibu even when he's 400 pounds and confined to a hoverround.

Why would you waste research dollars saving lives with drones?

Ya know, the AI versions of those could come in handy, on those smaller beaches that don't always have lifeguards on duty.

Pretty neat idea, you crafty Persians. Too bad it'll never get released to the world at large, thanks to your loony gov't and Supreme Leader (tm)

Iranic.

Why didn't they just buy a DJI S-800 and put some floats on it released by a servo motor?

Female drone?

How do we know those life preservers aren't full of enriched uranium?

Ah, there's the racist hate I came here for.

Feels good, man.

Dropping bagpipes on people is an act of war.

I don't know what kind of weak-assed butterfly stroke that lifeguard was trying there, but I think I've found the source of the 50-second gap.

counting number of days before they shoot it down and blame the US for spying on them...

On the flip-side, at least its an actual model and not some faked fake.

Sucks when people fake fakes.

It's Jingoism only if you want to take their land.
