As if flying drones weren't already scary looking enough, now we have a new hovering eye in the sky with a name as imposing as its science-fictiony looks.
The HoverMast is an autonomous hovering platform developed by Sky Sapience and designed to aid in rapid, mobile intelligence gathering. Tethered to a vehicle, the HoverMast can ascend to 160 feet in about 10 seconds and quickly offer information on the surrounding terrain via a wideband data link (the same link provides the device with power). No, this isn't a scan from the pages of Heavy Metal. Yes, this floating cyclops is "the future" of surveillance that is happening right now.
