Killer drones that can see through walls.
watch what you're doing in the bedroom, you might get blasted by the pilotless all-seeing drones of the moral fundamentalist police state. From a military standpoint this is a must have in a nation that abhors losing soldiers lives- especially over lies. It sure is scary having it in the hands of corrupt and unnaccountable people like the Democrats and Republicans.
For the last couple of days, in the Human Nature blog, I've been looking into a breakthrough cryptically reported in Iraq and Afghanistan: the ability of U.S. unmanned aerial vehicles to identify and track human targets "even when they are inside buildings." Several recently reported technologies might account for it, but Slate reader fozzy suggests looking for the answer in a military research field called STTW, usually translated as "sense-through-the-wall." Has this ability been extended to a distance that allows it to be used by aerial drones?
