US law enforcement are now using drone technology domestically. 60 minutes did a piece on drones about a year ago where some guy has a 9-5 job flying attack drones in Afghanistan remotely from Nevada. The helicopters are pretty cool, although it seems like there are going to be some privacy issues (very big brother).

This is very Terminator esque. We are going to turn around in five years and see the sky covered in heli drones. Anyone know who makes these things?

AeroVironment is as close to a public pure play drone company as they come. Though, about 25% of their business is in energy efficiency products.

Can wait til some crazy farmer shoots one of these down over his land with a 12 gauge for trespassing.

They all have husbands and wives and children and houses and dogs, and, you know, they've all made themselves a part of something and they can talk about what they do. What am I gonna say? "I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How've you been?"
