Do we really need spying Drones monitoring us ?

Do we really need spying Drones monitoring our activities with a high-definition sophisticated camera ?  I personally feel these type of devices should not be encouraged. Even if they are allowed, they should be given strict operating rules to the owners in order to protect the personal space of others. Why am I talking about all these flying hidden monitoring objects.



It all came from Parrot which launched their popular AR.Drone launched in 2010.Now they have further enhanced the Drone and released their latest creation Parrot AR.Dron 2.0. This updated version allows the pilot to take more control of the Drone and allow them to control it remotely.


Apart from this, it is equipped with 720p on-board camera and can record either video or images and transmit them directly to your smartphone.This is quite annoying. I agree its really great to have these type of devices but may lead to problems when the pilot remotely monitors others using this Drone.
