Nanotech Dragonflies Spy on Political Rallies

200710101644This is FAR too Diamond Age to be true but apparently ‘nanotech’ dragonflies are spying on anti-war protesters:

“I’d never seen anything like it in my life,” the Washington lawyer said. “They were large for dragonflies. I thought, ‘Is that mechanical, or is that alive?’ ”

That is just one of the questions hovering over a handful of similar sightings at political events in Washington and New York. Some suspect the insectlike drones are high-tech surveillance tools, perhaps deployed by the Department of Homeland Security.
