They sound like a swarm of bees. Come to think of it, they remind me of those aircraft in Avatar, or something similar anyway.

I see ... combined Refbots and Sports cameras. No foul unseen in Football (Soccer to our colonial friends), rugby, hockey, tennis etc, multiple shots seen at the same time and perfect choices for customer viewing, with AI to highlight a foul for all to see.

Latest comment: The military and spy apps of course, are too numerous to mention. Electroplate Stealth coatings and Run Silent technology from submarines and you could pretty much park a miniaturized version of this, equipped w/ all the micro satellite-linked, intel. gathering apparatus in production, hooked up to a supercomputer capable of processing 1 trillion bits of info a second and you could pretty much keep track of the whole world. Just look @ cellphone technology. AT@T pretty much knows your whereabouts already anyway.
