Sometimes, there's a fine line between technology and art. I wish someone would ask Claes Oldenburg what he thinks of this. From Slate, there is a report about America's latest surveillance drone:
Named after an all-seeing Greek god with 100 eyes, the Argus One is perhaps the strangest looking surveillance drone yet constructed. But the odd design of the airship is not deterring customers. In fact, it may be attracting them.
The flag on the head is a nice touch.
Last week World Surveillance Group, the Florida-based manufacturer of the Argus One, revealed it has been holding “high-level discussions” with U.S. and international government agencies about its unmanned airships. The company also reported that it had successfully completed recent testing of the Argus One in conjunction with government sponsors.
