Brits new drone flies indoors – and kills people

The UK’s Ministry of Defence is developing a twin shotgun-toting drone that is able to fly inside buildings, as well as identify prospective targets using AI vision, reports digitaltrends.com. The six-rotor drone presently exists in a prototype version called i9. It will be used primarily for indoor conflicts where a situation is deemed too dangerous to send in live personnel. While the drone has various autonomous features, the weapons will be remote-controlled by a soldier responsible for firing them

The Times newspaper explains this is the UK military’s first weaponised drone that can fly indoors. This is achieved using a mix of “physics and AI” that enable it to overcome a problem called “wall suck.”

Apparently, murder doesn’t suck!
