Technology continues to grow and bring us more exciting and convenient electronic products for our entertainment, safety, and other functions. Although the specific technology may change to accommodate new ideas, many of the existing electronic components or the science that they are based on will be carried over to make something new.
One type of technology that has seen a boost in capabilities and the ways that it can be used is in drones. The products were first used over a decade ago by the military. Today, individuals are permitted to buy and plans for drones in the future already include delivering packages and other domestic uses.
A New Smaller Version of the Drone
Like many of the electronic inventions of the past, drones are becoming smaller in size. It isn’t unheard of for electronics to transform from vacuum tubes to transistors, allowing them to be made on a much smaller scale. The introduction of tiny insect-like drones is one of the latest transformations that mean a product that is capable of doing just as much, if not more, than its larger counterparts.
The Ways That Small Drones Might Be Used
The two areas of interest for these drones are the military and intelligence. The tiny size of the drones will make it possible to detect and capture images, audio, and data and send it to the operator of the drone without being detected. Something that looks like an insect can infiltrate secure gatherings and provide needed information to the military in the field.
Although there is no reason to think that the tiny drones will become available to the public in the future, the military and intelligence can increase the safety of their agents and troops thanks to the tiny electronic devices that have once again mastered the transition from large and obvious to small and undetectable.
