8-year-old golfer smashes drone with ball, does her part to fight the robot uprising

New, comments

Drones have yet to become our new overlords, but one day, we will get there. The robot uprising is inevitable, but at least we know there’s someone who can fight back. Eight-year-old junior golfer Ruby Kavanagh is ranked no. 1 in Australia, and while she was practicing, her ball struck a $1,299 drone that I assume was being used to film her drive, and not for planning a future attack for its robot friends. After the drone got hit, it fell down to the ground like it peaced out and went unconscious.

Kavanagh said she was sorry for hitting the drone, but trust me, in about 10-15 years, when the robot wars are happening, Kavanagh will have been right all along.
