Here’s a scenario: A sky darkened with flocks of unlicensed UAVs, of varyied provenance and security arrangement. A networked ecosystem of machines so throughly hacked and botted that they effectively become a communal resource of aerial bandwidth. Occasionally, the authorities sweep through and calm a particularly nasty riot of sky eyes, but they are as persistent as pigeons and you can’t web drones out of the sky without causing even more havoc on the ground.
The wealthy increasingly choose to live indoors, with glass pedways to ferry them from work to club to home. The ultra-wealthy and ultra-private choose to live in hardened compounds, buying only the most exclusive and fashionable Faraday devices to survive the regular EMP busts they use to clear the air. The papparazzi have countered with EMP resistent camerabots of their own. Many of these have been hacked too.
Everything with a computer can be hacked. Drones too. (from Quiet Babylon).
