This Stross comments thread has gone down the drones strange attractor.

- Media has an annoying tendency to talk about drones as "robots". But almost all of them today are remote controlled not autonomous.

- There's a big spectrum here from DJI Phantoms with a GoPro to a Reaper.

- I bet the world arms expo in London just now is show-casing, remote control everything. Next: weaponising self-driving car tech. Or is that Civvy-ing autonomous arms tech.
