The gps would be its weakest point. Nevertheless, I guess that the key is the tendency to dwarf the technology hardware. Since the map of the world is already mapped with sufficient accuracy and as facial recognition is getting more and more accomplished, I imagine that topographic recognition will also be. Since there is no need to load in memory the topography of the whole world, but the limited space that one wants to attack, so much data would not be necessary. Thus, who needs the GPS?

The leading technology does not come to market until many years after its invention. It is coming out in incremenetal parts of technology. It is done in this way to maximize profits. If a 1cm2 battery is capable of storing 50mah, it is first taken out of 5mah for the first year, producing income for 10 years. Therefore, it is possible that there are already mini batteries with enough capacity for flight hours of these drones, much higher than in the market.

Yeah maybe, electronic parts become smaller and smaller and need less energy to function.
I don't believe they can function without radio control, but who knows...
Or else put up a smoke cloud. That will disturb topographic recognition.
Installing some kind of bird nets all over the attacked area would be an option too.
Transmitting a strong electromagnetic wave that will destroy those electronic bugs  :lol:

It's an obvious development predicted many decades ago. Sci-fi novel "Dune" had this technology, it was called a "hunter-killer". To defeat it, fight fire with fire. Program similar devices to attack and destroy these ones. "Swarm vs. swarm"

I would not lose too much sleep over it, individually human being are not all that hard to kill and the world has thousands of years of practice but try in on a wider scale and you have major logistic problems. Try and target a specific individual and you have to get it within proximity and have a way to identify the target or you risk killing an innocent bystander. Then the attacker may be surprised at how an individual may respond to it, how fast they can move, at what range they can hear/see the gadget and what they can do to deflect it.

Pick up a dinner place (if you are eating), a book if you are reading, duck behind your laptop screen and if you have any idea of what is coming, a tennis racquet would put one out of action real fast. At the passive level a mosquito net would be no fun for the propellers. On a large scale the delivery of a large number of the mini drones would be a problem as anything more powerful than a starving third would country has its own air force and even if its a 50 year old Mig 21 doing the take down, it would have no problems in whacking anything big enough to carry and release thousands of minidrones.

If you regularly look at junk on Youtube you will get to see all sorts of speculative bullsh*t about new and improved gadgets for sale to the military/police on how to kill or control large numbers of people but if the chyte really hit the fan in terms of conflict, it would be reliable old fashioned guns and explosives, tanks, aircrafts and if anyone of these morons are game enough, the end of the world (for humans) with flying nukes.  :P
