This May, Future Tense has been interrogating supposed creepiness of drones as part of our ongoing project Futurography, which introduces readers to a new technological or scientific topic each month. Now’s your chance to show how much you’ve learned.
We suspect you’ll do pretty well, but you might want to brush up first by rereading a few of the articles we’ve published on the topic.
This article is part of the drones installment of Futurography, a series in which Future Tense introduces readers to the technologies that will define tomorrow. Each month from January through June 2016, we’ll choose a new technology and break it down. Read more from Futurography on drones:
