Bug Season?

mosquitodroneIs this a mosquito?  No. It’s an insect spy drone for urban areas, already in production, funded by the US Government. It can be remotely controlled and is equipped with a camera and a microphone. It can land on you, and it may have the potential to take a DNA sample or leave RFID tracking nanotechnology on your skin.  It can fly through an open window, or it can attach to your clothing until you take it in your home.  Given their propensity to request macro-sized drones for surveillance, one is left with little doubt that police and military may look into these gadgets next.

Is this story real?  Is it a hoax? Is it science fiction, a conspiracy theory, or just wild paranoia?  How does someone know if a story has merit?  Should we believe these stories on their face or investigate them?

Five magic questions: Who? What? When? Where? Why? How?

  1. I believe it can be done , very interesting really but as something so small and so cool, it can also be used bad such as in lack of privacy and other things, Still very interesting .

  2. I believe that something like this exists, but to look something so similar to this bug I don’t believe so. I mean this sort of “camera” I think that people can easily swat something like this.

  3. This idea by the government is very intelligent for getting information, but this is the kind of idea that leads to abusive power. I wouldn’t want the government spying on me in this kind of matter. If they want to know something about me do it the old fashion way and ask because I have nothing to lie about. If so, don’t use a nasty bug, plant some wires or something.

  4. I don’t think I would wasn’t a little bug spying on my every move. Thats creepy in a way.

  5. I believe that there is this type of technology out there, but I don’t think that it is widely used yet. Will it be…..not for a while. I’m not sure if it would be beneficial or not overall.

  6. I have seen things like this in video games and movies. it would be pretty cool if they had something like this. I don’t think they have this technology yet, but then again they could. that’s scary! to think that a little bug could be a spy.

  7. If this is real I’m not gonna lie, that is some pretty cool technology. But how will it be used is something I’m worried about.

  8. This is a waste of technology. They should use that technology for actual useful stuff.

  9. This is taking things a little bit to far for the US government. The technology is pretty awesome, but it seems like they are using it for the wrong reasons.

    • This technology is incredibly advanced. At a quick glance it is mistaken for a mosquito but then with a close look it is a drone. I believe this is a tool that has to be tightly controlled on its uses. Is it an invasion of privacy ? Under what circumstances is it permitted to be used?

  10. The governement is really taking things over board. Like really? a mosquito? How many of those contraptions is the government going to have to make because it is really easy to kill a mosquito. They are just waiting more money that they are making us pay in our taxes.

  11. Whether this is real or not, I think it’s stupid! It almost seems as if the government is losing control and is resorting to things such as this to keep every single one of us on their radar. We are human beings and have God-given rights. Why must we be constantly monitored, DNA sampled, and given a tracking device into our skin from some lame “bug” the government created out of fear from being overrun? I don’t know whether this is fiction or fact, but if it is real, I can only see our country getting worse from here.

  12. It would be so creepy if this was real! I would not want a bug taking my DNA, plus I wouldn’t think this would be real because wouldn’t someone already have killed it?

  13. It is so crazy how the technology has advanced. The government has lots of technology that we wouldn’t even believe they have. Like with the mosquito I really did think it was a mosquito. But at the same time it is also not good for the technology to advance because they are using it to spy on people and have no privancy any more.

  14. I did not know that it was not an actual insect. i can not believe that the goverment is doing that.

  15. I thought this was a real mosquito in the picture but then I had to really look at it after reading the passage. It is crazy to think that the government has technology close to this level and keep it secret from us. I really hope that they wouldn’t use this to spy on people because that is a huge invasion of privacy.

  16. The advancement in technology is growing at such a rapid rate for the human race that this idea seems very possibly. The government has very much more technology than they release to the public because they simply have the best minds and capability to keep secrets from ther public. This is also a prime example to question the technology and accuracy of the information shown to the American people.

  17. I don’t think this story is true. If it would be true or were to come true, it is still not right for the government to have this kind of technology because they would be using it for a wrong reason. They would use it to spy on people and that takes away peoples’ privacy.

  18. It’s not hard to believe in the advancement of technology because it’s self evident in our lives. Do I have an irrational fear in the thought of robots being used to kill humans? No. We aren’t too far off from the reality that is “The Terminator” with Arnold Schwarzengar saying, “I’ll be back.”

  19. If this “mosquito” story is true it is completly insane. But considering how high tech technology has gotten, I would not be too surprised if it were true. This would though invaid everyones personal privacy which is totally unlawful.

  20. This is insane. I personallly think that people should not believe these stories well at least not till they do their own research on the story to see if it is true. If this is true then we will have no more privacy. I don’t really buy this story though.

  21. If this is a real story than it is unconstitutional. However, I know the goverment has this kind of technology. What is the world coming to!
