Gizmodo.com: “Are drones not scary enough for you yet? How about this? A drone helicopter that spots you and identifies you as an intruder. It tells you to stop and put your hands behind your head. Instead, you keep coming. The drone then shoots you with barbed Taser darts that pump 80,000 volts into you. If you try to get up, it will continue pumping voltage into you until you submit and the authorities arrive.
This isn’t some dystopian theory. It’s very real already, and I just saw it in action. Yes, it is terrifying.
Someone comes onto your property, which trips your home’s outdoor motion detectors.
- CUPID wakes up on its perch, activates, and flies over to get a visual of the person. At the same time, it alerts you via a smartphone app that something is up.
- Once it finds the intruder, it uses an onboard camera (currently a GoPro Hero 3) to transmit the intruder’s image to you. If you’re like, “Oh, that’s just Aunt Helen,” or it’s a deer or something, you press a button on your phone and it goes back to its perch.
- However, if it is an intruder, you press the Intercept button, and it warns them that they need to turn around and walk away. It also has two-way audio communication, so you can tell them yourself if you want. If they start walking away from your property, CUPID will leave them alone.
- But if they keep on coming, CUPID will shoot them with barbed Taser darts and zap them with a very incapacitating 80,000 volts of electricity straight to the nipples (or whereever the darts hit you). At the same time, it alerts the authorities. If you try to get away before the cops come, it will keep zapping you. Yes, it really works. They tried it on one of their employees this morning. (He’s fine.)
Opinion: Could it be? The seven Trumpet Judgments of Revelation can confound the mind: Hail and fire, meteors hitting earth and oceans, sun and moon darkened, demonic locusts and a demonic army followed by seven Bowl Judgments.
But what about those locusts? With a first century mind and reference point the Great Apostle John in Revelation 9:3-6 said this:
Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
Drones with an 80,000 volt stinger. Interesting.
