Drone

The use of military drones and robots are no longer relegated to  the dreams of a far flung future more and more it seems the future is now. Military robotics technology is real ready and in the battlefield over the next decade it will develop faster than anyone just 20 years ago could have predicted or even imagined. In the new web series “Drone” Director Robert Glickert and writer Daniel Casey create a world set in a near future where humanoid robots fight alongside human solders in the battlefield of the future. When things go south however special operations units are forced to track it down before it is too late. Its a another fascinating cautionary tale about the unintended consequences of advanced technology applied to warfare.
