And, this is beyond the bombing or electrical interference of your neighbour's late night inconsiderate parties.
With the modern day epidemic of Ebola in West Africa, who's to say that such deletorious viruses cannot be delivered economically by an antagonistic regime, person or group of people, in multiple locations by the self same technology.
Of course, this could also be applied to the delivery of wide spread cure at arms length in the same economical way.
And so, with the penchant of wide spread internet and drone convenience, we may be also opening ourselves to unintended actions and consequences.

How is it possible that the number of +1s can be so much greater than the total number of page views i.e. 52,520 versus 708?
Clearly, it is the result of a rather curious technical error.
Typically, such an application is invaluable for celebrities who seldom get a reprieve from imposing paparazzi.
Having written a post shown below on the 30th June 2009, I find it interesting that such a countermeasure has eventuality become a reality, even after so long:
"A device that will discreetly “blind” or distort images of cameras into the direction of which it is pointed. Perhaps a phantom mirage wall could be raised. I don't know, this will be for aliens to devise.
Such a device will be quite useful in the protection of privacy. For example, when someone wishes to leave some place (e.g. hospital) discreetly without having one’s image emblazoned in various media.
Of course, such a device could have various other useful applications. And, will tick off the visual press no end though.
PS. There has been talk of an invisibility cloak by bending light rays. Who knows? This could be a lower tech application thereof!"
