It’s called Cupid. Look for it in a sky near you.
Cupid was revealed at the SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin Texas as a concept for how security might be implemented in the future.
“The drone can be deployed when an alarm is triggered. It can find a subject and send live video to the owners phone and ask if you want to authorize the subject or detain them. If you detain them, it drops into fully autonomous mode to detain them until police arrive. If need be stunning them with 80,000 volts of electricity to render them incapacitated,” the firm said in a statement.
The firm said it hopes the drone will “shock the world”, although it wasn’t clear whether they were being ironic.
They also plan to bring out a pepper spray version in the near future.
Chaotic Moon is also developing an EMP drone to knock spying paparazzi drones out of the sky. The EMP drone would fly to within about 2 meters of the intruding drone and blast its electronics with an electromagnetic pulse that would mess up the offending drones electronics and knock it out of the sky.
