Ejector seat for drones

  [vote for,

A little ejector seat for the CPU, so if it looks like a terminal crash, it can eject itself.

Possibly comes with a teeny compass and silk map, to help evade capture in enemy territory.

       Did you take your medication today ? You promised the doctor you would take your medication every day. If you don't, you'll have to go ... back there.   

       You don't want that, do you ?

       May be that CPU hosts some kind of AI.

       Don't forget the teensy EMP for use when capture is imminent.

       This is achievable, by inversion. The magic blue smoke that causes the CPU to actually work usually escapes through the top planar surface of the package. Design the chip package so that it is easier for the magic blue smoke to escape through the bottom planar surface, where the land grid array connectors are, causing a jet propulsion effect, ejecting the CPU.   

       In fact, now that there are no optical drives on computers, and Macs still have the eject button on the top right corner of the keyboard, this can give it a good use — ejecting the cpu.   

       (There is actually a use for the Mac eject button:
ctl+eject asks you if you’re sure, to test your confidence.
cmd+opt+eject sleeps the Mac
ctl+cmd+eject restarts it
ctl+opt+cmd+eject shuts it down
(surely there’s a combination that vectors the HCF instruction?))

       //HCF instruction// part of the battery-pack drivers, I'd imagine.
