Item: Ad-de-Camp Automated Drones

Designation: Prototype

Storage Contact: Darla Thorn

Number in Storage: 7

Description:

Developed in a bid to better target consumers, this small fleet of drones can be programmed to patrol fixed flight paths over designated areas, though they can be remote-controlled and operated from a central computer. Each unit is equipped with an infrared camera and a small “turret” capable of emitting a mild electrical current with pinpoint accuracy. Autonomous units can also be connected to a cloud network via WiFi.

When in operation, the drones and/or their operator can fire their electric beam at a human target. The beams unique frequency is intended to cause an impulse in the brain that “plants” a selected advertisement in the memory center in a matter of milliseconds. These ads imprint the aural and visual aspects of a given ad directly into the brain and, at the time of storage, sensations of smell and touch were also being explored.

Reason for storage:

The bolts just killed people.

Final Order: Permanent Closed Storage

Further Notes: It should be said that while the initial tests of this idea were indeed tragic, the failure of this project gave way to the development of other, less-potentially-lethal projects, such as the Incidental Music initiative. It is possible this idea could be revisited if they can work out a similar area-of-effect with the drones.
