Police Take Natural Selection Into the Robot World

NETHERLANDS – UK – WORLDWIDE – Although as an unbiased news source we try to keep things as objective as possible sometimes a personal view, hopefully fuelled by common sense, bleeds through.

The latest tactic to ensure the demise of the drone as a delivery system has however a touch of the Flash Gordon or Lord of the Rings about it – Drones vs Eagles.
