It’s not just video games and consoles that use electronics and the PCB. Advancements in electronic manufacture has been utilised with a view to helping troops that stationed in warzones.
It has been reported that small robotic nano quadrotors, that are small miniature helicopters are being developed and this will revolutionise warfare. The small helicopters have 4 propellers, and although still in their infancy stage, have been extensively trialled in carrying items and also in the ability to manoeuvre through small gaps.
They are not much bigger than a hand and this will make them harder to spot and with the ability to perform a figure of 8 without bumping into each other there may well be an opportunity for the robotic nano quadrotors to perform in various situations outside, although this has not yet been tested.
These devices show that the printed circuit board and the advancement of electronic manufacture is there in every part of our lives and that technology can aid troops on the front line.
