Nano-Drones Coming Soon

Predator drones, like the one reported to have killed Pakistan Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud a few days ago, could soon be used to "swarm" targets and will also come in much larger and smaller packages, including moth-size "nano"-drones (aka Nano Air Vehicle or NAV), that can enter and spy inside buildings.

"War with the Robots," anyone? (Harry Harrison's forward-thinking 1962 short story and book.)
