Old Androids Never Die, They Just Have A Few Screws Loose

If you don't grok the acronym, don't worry about it.

OK, so I was reading about this Parrot AR Drone I have, how to mod and work with the software on it, and it turns out the sucker can run an Ubuntu chroot, all you have to do is give it some USB storage and a filesystem to run.

Or, say, a mini USB hub, a chroot with Kali on it, and a second wifi antenna, that you could, theoretically, fly near someone's vulnerable device and break in remotely, if you could do so within the flight span of the drone (so like 10 minutes).

Sure enough, the Sumo has the same thing, albeit at a different IP address (and ARM5 rather than ARM7).

Hmmmmmmmm.
