Lethal Frisbee UAV to hunt down "evildoers"
We're big fans of Ultimate Frisbee or even frisbee golf, but we'd probably want to keep our loved ones away from this flying disc. The US Air Force has just awarded a grant to military contractor Triton Systems to develop a "Lethal Frisbee UAV," which can be launched from a device like a skeet launcher and operated by remote control or autonomously. According to the grant abstract, the Lethal Frisbee UAV's ultimate goal is to locate fortified foes and, to "provide precision fires to neutralize these hostiles." You know, come to think of it, this Lethal Frisbee reminds us a lot of this dude we know who's got a mean throw -- gets us in the face every damned time.
