(Mother Nature Network)   True, drones do a lot of rotten things like blowing up wedding parties and spying on Americans. But they also discover ancient villages buried in New Mexico   (mnn.com) divider line 26

Which it subsequently blew up.

It didn't discover the village, but close enough.

Spying on Americans? Well trolled, subby.

It discovered nothing, blew up everything... Thanks green tech!

How long before FAA drones start shooting down hobby and business drones? Isn't this how WWI air warfare evolved?

How do we know the drone didn't destroy the village in the first place?

Why yes, subby is trolling. Because the govt has never spied on Americans.

There's a new Mexico?

Cool, now amateurs can discover places and plunder the Shiat out of them.

FTA: "Called Blue J, this 1,000-year-old village was first identified by archaeologists in the 1970s."

Apparently we now have drones that can time travel.

It's a gateway technology that will lead the way to a real skynet. They are masking it in the "friendly" use to comfort the sheeple but needs to be blocked before it takes over.

Death to all drones.

Drones becoming ubiquitous is inevitable. There can be further legal definition, but if something CAN be done it WILL be done by someone. I'd rather it was the US government leading it than almost any other organized entity in the world.

Me & the wife are planning a trip back to Chaco this summer, we're going to get away from the main area & take the 4WD roads to the more remote houses & camp out.

There's been talk of paving the main road in, but it hasn't gone anywhere yet.

Does this mean that drones aren't bad because they occasionally increase the amount of trivia we have available?

I would be insulted if I was the guy who discovered it back in he 70's.

Wait until they riot.  Then you will have to nerve staple the lot of them.

So many people call them drones, when they're just high tech toys. I'm building one right now, nothing too fancy, but built the way I want it. Sure, you can buy a turn-key model pretty much ready to go for 300-400 bucks, But I'm going the home builder route. Sure it takes a lot longer, but you learn more by doing it. I'm not talking one of those "heavy lifter" types, just a durable, all around type. Plus living in NM, there is a lot of wide open space. Even along the freeway median, here  South of Albuquerque, in the early evenings, you can find parasailers using the hills for a takeoff and landing area. Along the median of the freeway , mind you. Granted, the freeway is only 2 lanes, but it's still rated 75mph.
 Out at Sandia Labs out here, every once in a while you'll see a hexacopter flitting around. Mostly nothing to see out here, except for dirt bikers.

Good. The little puddlejumpers that the Border guards use right now are really quite crap, a bit unstable, a pain to pilot, and expensive on fuel. If these little guys take over and make all that cheaper and safer? Good all around.
