Hovering Drones - Miami police Department

This 16lb drone, called the Honeywell MAV (Micro Air Vehicle), is a pilotless flying vehicle loaded with infra red and optical sensors.

Juan Villalba of the Miami Dade Police Department told Reuters that "Our intentions are to use it only in tactical situations as an extra set of eyes" – a kind of snake-o-scope to help SWAT teams see around corners.

We doubt it. The drone is set to go live in the Everglades, which makes us think that these things will be buzzing around searching for drug smugglers and other ne'er-do-wells.
