Smile at the drone - you might be on live camera

by Bruno Deshayes on 16 Mar 2016 permalink
Just like computers and mobile phones have forever changed our social landscape, the next technological revolution is just about to hit.

Combined with that is the inept behaviour of governments who lack to provide a clear legal framework for new technology to be rolled out. Remember how queasy you felt when you first saw a picture of your house on Google Street-view? Well, that's just the beginning.

Who are the pundits interested in spying on everyone else? Market analysts have found that law enforcement agencies would be the prime clients but everyone knows that most governments are broke. Police, fire rescue and of course the military are jumping on the bandwagon. Next are the marketers who are outdoing each other in building huge databases of consumer behaviour. Then we have the hobbyists or interest groups or geeks who like to tinker with expensive toys and show off their prowess on You Tube.  Of course through those channels the Taliban will procure themselves some drones to spy on the Americans and we have gone full circle.

Some upmarket realtors in well-to-do suburbs already use drones to film compelling fly-by videos. They show off a property for sale without the clients having to jump on a plane to visit and see the place for themselves.

Just imagine a newscast in five years time: an elderly woman was hit on the head by a flying camera when a nearby investigative reporter lost control of his drone.

What about this one: criminals used a radio jamming transmitter to escape from a pursuing police drone. The remote control plane then lost control and there was a remote possibility that left to its own devices it would crash into the incoming traffic on the highway. Indeed it did and killed a family of four. The criminals are still at bay and it was reported that they themselves also used a drone to plan their escape route ahead of their speeding car.

Wait, there is more: a security guard used his gun to shoot down a drone flying over a private property. A famous actress was on the premises at the time and some paparazzi were on the prowl to take some scoop pictures.

A lawyer for a drawn-out divorce litigation case hired a private detective. A drone was flown outside the couple's window to gather evidence of an adulterous relationship taking place. The drone photo evidence was rejected in court as there was no proof the images were not digitally retouched to incriminate the defendants.

So there you have it. Drones will not change anything. Instead our lives will just be on edge one notch higher.
