This Huge Anti-Drone Net Launcher Looks Like It Came From A Video Game
This bazooka-like device fires nets at drones to pull them out of the sky.By Ben Lawson | March 5, 2016
No doubt about it: Drones are getting popular. And governments and private companies alike are scrambling to find a solution to take out devices that buzz around in areas where they shouldn't be.
OpenWorks Engineering thinks it's found that solution: an anti-drone net launcher that looks like it came straight out of a video game.
The SkyWall 100 uses a smart scope that predicts the drone's flight path to help the user aim. It then uses compressed air to launch a tiny rocket that drops a net on the drone. The net has a parachute attached to give the drone a softer landing so it isn't too damaged if it's part of a forensic investigation.
