The military has been using unmanned drones to carry out operations for years but as the technology becomes more accessible, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that interest is picking up domestically.
A Texas-based company called Chaotic Moon Studios recently showed off Project C.U.P.I.D. – Chaotic Unmanned Personal Intercept Drone – during SXSW and fortunately for us, several cameras were on hand for the demonstration.
The six-rotor aircraft packs a laser targeting system and an 80,000 volt stun gun that’s designed to hunt down and stop criminals in their tracks. The unfortunate intern in the clip above reportedly volunteered to be zapped although he was compensated for his time (and discomfort).
