    4-8-15- Dr. Hildy®: Beware The Designer Mosquito and Her Friends


    Wednesday, April 8, 2015, 1:00-3:00PM Pacific
    (2:00-4:00pm Mountain; 3:00-5:00pm Central; 4:00-6:00pm Eastern)
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    With summer approaching, it’s not uncommon to often find things buzzing around your head. Most of the time, it’s harmless flies or mosquitos, trying to feed. But recently, there have been more things flying around. With the rise of remote controlled flying drones, there are more cameras than ever looking at us always. But while these are easily identifiable, flying insects are often not. Not only due to size, but also due to mutations and other factors that render them from their common forms to new species never seen before.


    With drones becoming increasingly prevalent, people are taking measures to protect themselves from their prying eyes. While the FAA has not taken steps to regulate these machines, nine states have taken measures to enact laws to regulate their use and illegal surveillance.


    But what happens when the cameras become too small to see? Currently, there are cameras smaller than a penny that can take high-resolution photos. The military and other contractors are currently designing surveillance drones that resemble insects, not just in appearance, but also in size.
