That's Cool

Flying saucer that can plant explosives or bugs set for frontline - Telegraph Built by a bunch of university students, it can do a whole lot of stuff that the military might need. That the police will have it as well is perhaps not quite so cool.
The UFO-like object is among a range of gadgets that have been developed by schools, universities and small companies as part of a Ministry of Defence competition to develop everyday technology to help troops fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The lift fan was developed to have low noise. It weighs 44 pounds to be "easily" handled. Though smaller might be easier. GPS navigation, etc.

This kind of thing appeals to my inner geek.
