Japanese Robo-Crop Dusters Seized

Drama is going on over in Japan regarding these miniature robotic crop dusters being manufactured by Yamaha. More than 200 Japanese police officers raided the Yamaha office Monday seizing nine of these crop dusting robots that were scheduled to be exported. These robots are unmanned, equipped with GPS and can be programmed to fly however the hell you want. In Japan they are primarily used for crop dusters, but Yamaha had nine of these robots bound for China, and that definitely raised some red flags. Bioterrorism weapons in the form of plastic RC 'copters? You betcha!
