Drone Survival Guide

Drones are becoming a more and more common sight in skies around the world, so independent artist and designer Ruben Pater thought it was high time to create a guide to these birds of prey (or otherwise) for people around the world.

Our ancestors could spot natural predators from far by their silhouettes. Are we equally aware of the predators in the present-day? Drones are remote-controlled planes that can be used for anything from surveillance and deadly force, to rescue operations and scientific research. Most drones are used today by military powers for remote-controlled surveillance and attack, and their numbers are growing. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) predicted in 2012 that within 20 years there could be as many as 30.000 drones flying over U.S. Soil alone. As robotic birds will become commonplace in the near future, we should be prepared to identify them. This survival guide is an attempt to familiarise ourselves and future generations, with a changing technological environment.

Posters are available at his website, complete with some helpful hints on the flip side, though he makes no guarantees that once targeted, you’re safe if there’s ill intention behind their mission.

At least you’ll know what’s after you, though.
