These things are concept.
Increase their size and power a bit, squeeze the logic a bit further, equip with cameras and/or even guns and they are the perfect tool for crowd control or even total control.

Any politician's wet dream...

Maybe its because I don't actually see them as toys...

Drones

Cloud Chaser

Sorry you are right, but haven't they crashed a few as well?, as far as I am aware they use them in the states also to catch speeders on the lonely long highways.

A friend of mine was caught out by this, and asked the question, how did they know he was speeding, turned out they have the drones patrolling

Did you see how the whole swarm went through that simulated window? Put explosives on all of them and you have a new attack weapon to clear out a building/cave/room with known badguys.

Don't know if you saw the video of cruise missiles flying in formation that was accidentally shot by a Harrier pilot in the gulf years ago. The capability for Uav's to fly in formation has existed for quite a while - it's just kept reasonably quiet!
