Want a Drone that Fits in the Palm of Your Hand? The Military Does

Drones come in all shapes and sizes, any drone enthusiast can tell you that. Prox Dynamics, a norwegian company, has developed the PD-100 Black Hornet 2. While the British military has been using the Black Hornet since 2013, the US is finally jumping on the bandwagon. Military testing has begun.

US Special Forces are testing a tiny bug-like drone that could change the future of warfare.

The teeny flying robot, called the PD-100 Black Hornet 2, weighs 18 grams with cameras and fits in the palm of your hand. The device, which can fly for up to 25 minutes with a range of two miles, also features both regular and thermal cameras.
