Crime Fighting Kite

The New York Times > Technology > Circuits > What’s Next: An Aerial Crime-Fighting Tool Banks on Portability: “Dr. Yu-Wen Chang, the company’s president, said that he expects to sell his Kite Plane, which has a wingspan of about 4 feet and weighs less than 5 pounds, for $5,000 apiece. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department will be the first law enforcement agency to test the plane,
probably in April, Dr. Chang said.”

  • That is so much more cooler than the huge, phallic Supersize Jumbo Jet they unveiled the other day, and which I could care less about. It reminds me a little bit of these little black mantarays at the Long Beach Aquarium I saw this summer, who would flap their little bat selves alongside the edge of the tank and you could PET THEM!! Can I pet the kite plane?

  • oh, you can “pet the plane.” i love petting rays! i did that in the ocean and but it’s hard to squeal with glee underwater, wouldn’t you agree?

    Now we add kites to the list of items one can be paranoid of. Btw, can we get them with Disney characters on them? I would look good in Goofy I do believe.
