Drones to perch on power lines for self recharge.


ok, am I the only one getting serious SkyNet vibes from this story?   So if the drones can land on powerlines to recharge they can stay up there forever?  At least they haven’t found a way to reload missles/bullets while up there.   Kind of reminds of the Roomba that can go and charge itself when it gets low on energy.    Wonder if it can suck up enough energy to power flight plus a big death ray?   (Hope not).   Get the story here: [WashingtonTimes]
