Introducing The Net-Wielding Interceptor Drone  

drone-capture

You need a drone to get a drone. That’s the philosophy of the police in Tokyo who were the first to realize that an innocent looking drone could turn out to be a carrier of explosives or poisons. The solution was a net-wielding drone interceptor that could hunt down suspicious quadcopters.

Watch the above demonstration.

Japan is actually planning for drone squads as the most efficient way to provide protection for a number of the city’s most important buildings, including the Imperial Palace, the National Diet (where Japan’s parliament meets), and the prime minister’s office.

The six-rotor interceptor drone is capable of casting a net several times the size of the drone being captured. The world is watching Japan to see if the net is a successful solution. Hope so. We need something, fast. 

Thank you Mashable for alerting me about this.
