U.S. Air Force is testing Google Glass & building apps for battlefield use

The positive attributes “are its low power, its low footprint, it sits totally above the eyes, and doesn’t block images or hinder vision,” said 2nd Lt. Anthony Eastin, a behavioral scientist on the BATMAN team testing the glasses.
The BATMAN evaluation group is part of the U.S. Air Force’s 711th Human Performance Wing and is one of the military’s most distinguished research and development groups. It comprises both military and civilian behavioral and technology scientists. The BATMAN acronym stands for Battlefield Air Targeting Man-Aided (K)nowledge.

Flone

Spanish maker project that turns an Android smartphone into a drone for photo or video capture (or other potential uses), operated by another smartphone - video embedded below:

[Google Translation from Spanish:]

We are Aera, a cooperative project that is growing around the drones based on their use as a multidisciplinary tool. So far we have done activities have been related to the field of art and technology but we are also investigating the social and professional use you might have. We are a group of people who come from different professional backgrounds and approach to work it is very different from projects topography or energy performance certificates for buildings to afforestation with release of seeds or Flying protest banner, launching poems from the air , aerial photography … and now Flone, a mobile flying. Flone is a project of art and technology that are developed within the artistic residency of the call Next Things 2013 Labor Center of Art and Telefónica I + D. The idea is based on the technology of the Drones and the use of mobile as a platform for flight control.

CUPID drone features an 80,000 volt stun gun.
Tech company Chaotic Moon have shown their smartphone-controlled drone called CUPID, able to detain a subject by using an 80,000 volt stun gun.
The power output is so strong, it creates an electromagnetic field large enough to ruin any electronics within a five foot range. The electronics in the drone itself are shielded in a Faraday cage.
There’s a video up here of the drone ‘detaining’ an intern.
