From the military that brought us memorable products such as the GPS, the digital camera and the internet, now comes the the robot jet ski. Sounds like something straight out of a '007' flick, doesn't it? But the U.S. Navy has made it a reality.
All decked out with a plethora of high-tech surveillance systems, the drone jet ski - codenamed 'Blackfish' - is apparently designed to go after "amphibious terrorists." Just imagine the epic struggle of swimming towards the U.S. border, dodging sharks and piranhas, only to be met by the aquatic version of 'Robocop.'
Joking aside, the real question is how does this thing tell the difference between a threatening and non-threatening swimmer? Does a terrorist swimmer look any different from a casual swimmer?
