Shooting Down Drones Just Got A Lot Easier

  • by: Maarten Schenk

Celebrities who like to sunbathe in the nude or who sometimes forget to put on their underpants (hi Justin Bieber) will love this. There now is a quick and easy way of blasting those annoying paparazzi drones from the sky and it doesn't involve missiles, bullets, explosives or other nasty stuff that might injure innocent bystanders or get you sued.

Check out the Battelle DroneDefender: simply point it at the offending drone and a powerful blast of electromagnetic radiation will disrupt the connection between the drone and its operator. In most cases this will trigger the drone's software to automatically attempt a safe landing or to return to its point of origin.

Lead Stories' Trendolizer™ constantly scours social networks worldwide for trending developments in personal anti-drone defense. Scroll down to see the latest.
