Disturbing footage out of Communist China shows something out of dystopian films “THX 1138” or “1984” — coming to a town near you!
Shocking video out of Communist China shows a drone hovering above a border checkpoint barking orders at motorists to scan the accompanying QR code attached to it.
The video shows a small quadcopter “police” drone carrying a QR code hovering 20 feet above the road demanding drivers scan the code to see if they qualify to cross the checkpoint.
This is something out of “THX 1138,” a 1971 film set in a dystopian future in where the populace is controlled through android police and mandatory emotion-suppressing drugs.
This comes as China continues to impose lockdowns in specific regions of the country over a supposed COVID resurgence.
China has been leveraging drones during the COVID crisis, deploying them to bark orders at citizens to remain in their homes or observe social distancing rules.
QR codes have become a feature of China’s social credit score framework.
Drones will likely become a key policing tool of the country’s social credit system, which corporations are trying to implement here in the United States.
In the meantime, the establishment will try to sell drones and robots as cute and trendy while preparing them for far more nefarious purposes.
