Mini drones have a number of uses.
One guy is working on a way to use drones to deliver flotation devices to people at risk of drowning. And then there’s this guy who built a drone that carries a fully functioning semi-automatic handgun.
Drones can also be used to annoy the crap out of firefighters working to extinguish a blaze… until they spray your drone with a water hose, that is. And then, if you’re a perv who’s looking to peek at some underage girls sunbathing in their backyard, a drone with an attached camera could definitely come in handy. Well, until the girls’ father catches you and shoots your drone with a shotgun.
Furthermore, for those who wish to smuggle drugs into a prison, a mini flying drone could be considered a God-send, and that’s exactly what guards discovered had occurred when a fight broke out between about 75 inmates in the north yard of the Mansfield Correctional Institution in Mansfield, Ohio, last week.
Surveillance video caught the mini bot dropping the party platter, which included 144.5 grams of tobacco, 65.4 grams of marijuana and 6.6 grams of half pure heroin.
It’s unclear at this time who dropped the drugs into the yard, but prison officials said they’re keeping a closer eye on the sky.
