This Drone with Arms Can Turn a Valve

Drones can shoot you down and kill you, so they can be pretty scary. Well, they are about to get scarier. Drones that have arms, like this one could be a whole new danger.

This “armed” drone from Christopher Korpela, Matko Orsag, and Paul Oh, of Drexel University and the University of Zagreb is able to use its grippers to turn a valve. Sure that has a lot of practical uses that could help humanity. But THIS DRONE HAS ARMS. IT OPENS DOORS! If you hide, it will just open every door until it finds you. It won’t stick to just opening your bottles and jars.

What else could drones with arms do? Pick you up and carry you off for one thing. They could also wield weapons and come flying at you with sticks and knives. Please folks, dis-arm these drones.
