      Sounds like a dangerously good idea :)

      The MOD have been doing a lot in recent years in terms of researching unmanned vehicles - my old uni entered a big competition to design an unmanned reconnaissance drone for infantry squads to use in the field. The concept makes a lot of sense, but lets just hope there is an autopilot for when windows crashes! :)
