The Super Bowl is a No Drone Zone

Source: YouTube Video

The FAA has produced a YouTube video encouraging attendees of the Super Bowl to "leave your drone at home." The video resembles other public service announcements, from the stock photos of anti-smoking ads to the diabolical use of the head rhyme of "Don't Copy That Floppy" — the video's titled "No Drone Zone."

While it's encouraging to see the FAA being proactive about drones, which can fall out of the sky anywhere — from your backyard to the White House — a better method for protecting citizens from the misuse of drones would be proper policy. Until then, we're left with these short videos that, five years ago, would have scanned as fake PSAs from alternate reality sci-fi films. When people ask when we'll live in the future, show them this video. Nothing is more futuristic than a boring government video kindly asking the public to refrain from bringing smart flying robots that could be used to bring unspeakable horror to the most televised event in the country.
