This is what it looks like when doves spy
If you’ve ever looked up to the sky and marveled at the graceful sweep of bird gliding above, be warned: it could be a Chinese drone monitoring your every move. The idea might seem far-fetched, but robotic birds are very much a reality, and China has been using them to surveil people across the country. Sources told the South China Morning Post that more than 30 military and government agencies have deployed the birdlike drones and related devices in at least five provinces in recent years. The “spy bird” program, code-named “Dove”, is being led by Song Bifeng, a professor at Northwestern Polytechnical University in Xian, capital of northwestern China’s Shaanxi province.
