China launches high-tech bird drones to watch over its citizens



Look! Up there! A pretty little bird gliding majestically through the sky, encapsulating the beauty of na -- oh wait. It's a high-tech surveillance drone.

Over recent years, more than 30 Chinese military and government agencies have been reportedly using drones made to look like birds to surveil China's citizens in at least five provinces, according to the South China Morning Post Sunday.

The program is reportedly codenamed "Dove" and run by Song Bifeng, a professor at Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xi'an. Song was formerly a senior scientist on the Chengdu J-20, Asia's first fifth-generation stealth fighter jet, according to the Post.

Drones look like actual fucking doves.

The imagination of the Chinese knows no bounds.
