Remote controlled grocery store robot.
If you can't get reliable staff locally, you can get staff in another country.
Even stacking shelves could be done in other countries!

(not controlled by AI)
play a major role in current precision warfare against individuals.
(Contrast with the simple
of previous warfare.)
is in widespread use in combat,
and attacks on small targets (individuals, vehicles, etc.)
is a tiny "suicide" drone that can be carried in a backpack.
It is launched from a tube, and can be steered onto a target,
where it explodes.
It is already in use in combat.
Affordable quadrotor "drone"
that can be remote-controlled with iOS and Android devices.
Some people have programmed it to make it autonomous.
The Predator drone.
is a larger unmanned bomber
with extra capabilities (stealth capability, invisible to radar,
faster, aircraft carrier launch and landing, midair refuelling).
Swarm of nano quadrotors.
Autonomous (not remote controlled).

Intel light show with 1,500 drones.
Like fireworks, but flexible and intelligent.
Plans to use drones for general home delivery.
(Replacing FedEx, Amazon, pizza delivery, etc.)
Safety obviously a top concern.
(Though home delivery trucks and vans crash too.)
A movie drama about how
swarms of miniature killer drones
could change warfare.
Whether they could lead to a breakdown of society, as here, is one question.
But they could certainly change warfare.
could be much faster with software-controlled cars.
The above could be done - but would probably be too terrifying a ride for the humans!
A more synchronised (but still software-controlled) flow would be easier on the humans' nerves.
