While we're all in favor of bringing down a nosy drone that's flying over your house by any means necessary, it's not exactly the safest thing in the world! For starters, you can't very well shoot at it with a real gun because that's illegal! And anything more severe, like, oh, we don't know, launching a firework at it, could prove deadly. Actually, to be fair, both of those options are deadly. Just don't it do it, guys. We have a much safer alternative to present you with!
DroneShield's DroneGun Tactical can disable any airborne bot (like drones or RC copters) from over half a mile away. How, you ask? Well, it's pretty simple —although, we're sure the technology behind it is pretty complicated. The DroneGun uses jammer frequencies. Meaning, no, you're not actually shooting anything physical at the target. That said, it's still pretty badass.
DroneShield detailed the benefits of the DroneGun and we've got to say, as soon as this thing is made legal — because currently, it's not — we'd like to get our hands on one! Take that government spies and or trolls trying to pry into people's private lives using technology, albeit really cool technology.
