Robofalcons run amok, film at 11
I don't know about you guys, but this seems like a recipe for disaster to me.
A flock of robotic falcons has been dispatched to tackle an influx of obese pigeons who are increasing in number and size thanks to an unnatural diet of fastfood.Now honestly, how long before the robofalcons exceed the parameters of their programming, eliminate the pigeons, and start going after people instead?!
The mechanical birds -- called 'Robops' -- have been placed on rooftop locations around the British city of Liverpool, and will flap their wings and squawk loudly to scare the problem pigeons away.
The initiative was launched to deal with the birds who are now considered a nuisance in the city, flying at people and leaving droppings everywhere, Liverpool council said.
