Not since "the incident" -- I only just got rid of the last bunch -- and it has to be said that the idea of arming them with 1W lasers probably wasn't as well thought out as it could have been (there's an experiment I won't be performing again :-)

@Caleb: I see where you are going with that scary thought of yours! The collective intelligence of rats may one day surpass that of a 'bright' human being! Reminds me albeit tangentially of a well-known Einstein quote -I am paraphrasing here: that there are only two things that are infinite, one, the universe and the other, human stupidity. Einstein wasn't so sure about the first one!
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
