Have you ever wondered what a terrifying dystopian future might look like, take a look at the video below. Ostensibly a showcase of an unmanned Global Hawk aircraft flying really close to a manned one (developed by NASA as part of an in-air refuelling project), it does somewhat point to the US Armed Forces using the technology to spy on citizens of a far away land, or even to indiscriminately open fire on them, hoping to fatally wound at least one baddy.

Despite our paranoid fear that they really are coming to get us, we do have to admit that the technology behind it: the two vessels are 45,000 feet up, and only 40 feet separates them. The ultimate goal is to have two unmanned drones doing the deed, the idea of which creeps the hell out of us
