We’re well on our way, it seems, to using UAVs to help co-ordinate disaster responses.  The UAVs, designed by Professor Nick Jennings as part of the Orchid research project, are semi-intelligent and can co-ordinate as a team to help the humans better.

I’d like to see a story from the point of view of one of the drones.  If they’re semi-intelligent, it can’t be that long before they’ll have a point of view, can it?

Alternatively, we build a huge fleet of them to help with disasters, but they get fed up and take over the world.  Not original, I know, but there’s a reason it’s been done so often!
