    I wonder how many square foot a Intel i7 microprocessor implementation would occupy...

    Even if I haven't said it, I was thinking of the electro- mechanical implementation.

    Still not a problem, if the elements are very, very, very small...

    Yes...

    That must be one of those new-fangled 1 Hz clock rate beasties

    The drone delivered the kidney...now we just need robots to extract them.

    Can't drones deliver beer yet?

    Great in a noisy nightclub.

    Watch out squirrels - next is nut collection.

    Why?

    More trees, more nuts, more squirrels.

    I've got a bigleaf maple in back of my house that plants its offspring without moving at all.

    It could be very stealthy.

    It all depends what kind of trees you're planting. Ailanthus altissima "tree of heaven" require no encouragement at all, drone or otherwise. (FWIW, this was the subject species of "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn").

    The planting drones fire a biodegradable seedpod into the ground with pressurized air at each predetermined position at 120 seedpods per minute.

    That's not tree planting. Tree planting is trekking up and down a mountain with a shovel and a bag of seedlings and it's really really tough work.

    Yup, especially in the middle of winter (best time for planting) on frozen ground on a steep incline, lugging a bag of seedlings and a hoedad.

    As drones are becoming so helpful on earth I'm wondering how they would do on the moon.

    Although there is no air there, there is plenty of dust which could be used as a propellant and during the day solar energy, of course, if you want to take pictures of Amstrong footprints you will have to be extremely careful otherwise the downwash might damage them.

    I suggest two drones tethered together by a long tether and the camera between them.

    Drones won't have to worry about their wheels getting stuck.

    Drones could be used to plant trees on the moon....

    There, I fixed it for you.
