Oppressive governments could drop a bunch of these on a crowd of dissodents and let them be used as tracking devices to catch them when they go home. Sounds too distopian to be good.

@WilliamBaric

When I was a kid, I was fascinated with science and technology. I was dreaming about the future, imagining the fantastic world that technology would create.

40 years later, I now wish I could go back in the past to escape the dystopian hell that technology has created.

These tiny devices are impressive, but I’m now quasi certain they will be used to make our lives even more miserable.

Wtf? You sound like the angry one here, because its definitely not me. I’m just saying I think their science is clearly a load of bullshit. Is that okay for me to say or not? Or perhaps you’d be happier if popular opinions were just cancelled completely?

That is not flying. That is falling slowly. Flying consists of taking off, landing, and doing again.

@WaxingRadiance

The same thing as always will happen when ‘science’ is used as the excuse. It will be a tremendous waste of money, resources, and time to create something pointless. The goal is microscopic surveillance devices.

Yes I did…. but “Bio degradable” is not the same as safe for consumption. Microchips are famous for not containing anything very nutritional, even ones that dissolve!….. sounds like you should be working for Astra Zeniker or Pfizer…..

Again? Go outsite a bit a more, into nature. Turn of your phone. Also, explain why science has specificaly become our enemy in regards to the content presented in this video. Survailance? Ingestion? Maybe your are more the type for mind control, spread of virus, alien larva … be creative. Just have the curtesy to comment on the content of the video rather than pushing your agenda by leveraged by someone elses work without any tangible input.

@foxpup

Technology is only as good as it is obedient TO YOU. Your phone isn’t 100% your servant, nor is your TV, your Windows/Mac machine, or even your car nowadays in most cases. Technology is much less dystopian when it is 100% yours to control. That means shunning that hot new iPhone/Android device and lots of devices with “smart” features, but you don’t have to live in the stone age. The open hardware and software community are actively dealing with this issue including opensource and degoogled phones. Technology can still be great. It’s just that our age of innocence is over. Want to feel great about technology again? Build your own 3d printer with 100% open source hardware and software and then enjoy designing new stuff and sharing those designs with others people. If that’s not your thing, there are lots of other great things you can do. Might even want to visit a maker space where you can commune with other people who like to make things. You can inspire each other!! :-)

@muon

True, which is why I say “so they claim”, but the way Anton phrased it I think he said “not harmful to the environment” so I would hope they keep it honest. All the crap this leaves behind was certainly the first thing I thought of.

@muon

Did you watch the video? He said they’re working on a biodegradable version which “dissolves” leaving nothing harmful. (So they claim anyway..)

@HMBob

Yes, I did. My comment compared the “better than nature” claim, to their vaxx, which they say exactly the same thing about. But here you are now trying to tie my comment to 5g and mind control, and thats completely irrelevant to both my comment and this video. You’re just making an idiot of yourself. Why don’t you go challenge the scammers below you dumb cunt. Like yours, their comments have nothing at all to do with this video…clearly that’s not really the basis of your butt hurt here though is it…

@egomotive

You are entitled to your opinion, but this video does not seem to be about sience in genereal, it is about a “flying device”. Why comment with a generic statement? There are great comments but the most upvoted are those that have nothing to with the content of the video. Edit: The other comment where i had a similar complaint had relevance, my fault…

@egomotive

Do you have any input to the video? I see a statement towards vaccines, with the only tie beeing “Better than nature”. Is it because you feel the devices will never work? Maybe you feel they are used for mind control using 5G? An environmental cathastrophe? Are the devices like vaccines because X, Y or Z? What is the meaing of “Better than nature” in relation to vaccines and how does that connect to this video? Pardon my ignorance.

Oh, i was not aware of that, in that case, i do ow an appology, there is indeed the better than nature claim out there regarding vaccines. I am indeed sorry for highjacking this comment. Thanks for the clarification. My original comment is slimed to death, but if @JustaBlocke wishes, i am happy to remove all my comments under his. Edit: Some of the other comments below are just crazy to see under this video. I picked the top ones to complain, and in this case I indeed was too trigger happy.
