Are mind-controlled drones a good idea?

    If this could be achieved by way of a neural interface "helmet" that I could take on and off at my discretion, maybe.

    But there is NO way in hell would I ever have something man made implanted (surgical or otherwise) into my noggin.

    The only things that enter my body from the neck up involve chewing, drinking, swallowing and (of course) sucking in my fair share of the air!

    Seems there are a lot of people out there that can't even control themselves with their minds...let alone a drone...

    The idea seems neat but I don't think there is an elegant way to implement this, or at least not at the current time.

    As Bruce has already brought up, humans are to easy to distract. When a foxy lady approaches, she gets all my attention. The heck with the drone. BUT all a woman has to see is a nice pair of shoes and she's gone. Not meant to offend anyone. You all know it's true. :)

    Considering all the issue we currently have with flying, this would be a very bad idea. Personally, I think mind controlling pretty much anything is a bad idea. I'm sure everyone see the effects of driving, and using a cellphone at the same time. Doesn't matter if you are talking, texting, or hands-free, a good portion of you mind is focused on the conversation, and not were your full attention should be at all times. There are some things we can't train ourselves to completely ignore, like threats and danger, survival sort of overrides everything. Might only take a quick second to identify the threat, as nothing to worry about, but it will pull your attention away from all else.

    Some people are better at multi-tasking than others, but the vast majority are just fooling themselves, if they can do many things, all the time, flawlessly.

    Back in the 70s almost everybody had a CB radio in their vehicle, and we didn't have these kind of problems while driving......Different generation I guess........

    CB radio operation did not take as much attention to operate as a cell phone.
    When I was operating mine I did not have to take my eyes off the road to operate it. My channel usage was fairly minimal. I had 3 channels that I frequented and changing to them was infrequent and I could accomplish that with just feeling the clicks on the channel selector. And communication was done in short, to the point bursts.
    Cell phone usage (ESPECIALLY texting) takes your attention and eyes off the road for WAY too much time.

    I think we should go back to CB radios, and the service was free...Of course back in the 70s when I was driving truck, you had to have an FCC license to operate a CB radio, but as far as I know it is free now.....my license was $20 back then.......I still have a CB on my motorcycle, but just to talk to other riders in the group....
