Irans Attacks

Iranian technology at its finest

A good little story to finish off the week.

Earlier in the week, Iran announced on its state media that its scientists had just developed the world’s first actual flying saucer. Whether or not they are planning to abduct dumb rednecks from Texas was not confirmed.

Experts have posited that this is an attempt to destroy US air power like the aliens from Independence day. I guess Iran didn’t factor Will Smith into the equation.

TEHRAN (ISNA)-Iranian aerospace scientists have built an unmanned flying saucer.

The flying saucer (cuadrotour) called “Saturn” (Zohal in Persian) was unveiled in the exhibition of strategic technologies with the presence of Islamic Revolution Commander-in-Chief Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei.

The device belonging to the new generation of vertical flyers is designed for aerial photography.

It is equipped with autopilot, image stabilizer and GPS and has a separate system for aerial recording with FULL HD quality as well as another system for aerial photography with 10 megapixel capability which can be sent and recorded simultaneously.

The machine involves a small and portable land station with the monitoring capability and is able to fly indoors and outdoors.

Easy transportation and launch and flying with less making noise are some of the advantages of the device.

The picture above comes from Fars News Agency. The ISNA released the far more realistic but infinitely less cool photo below:

Looks like Mr Achmadinejad is more Plan 9 From Outer Space than War of The Worlds, if you catch my drift.
