An app controlled drone that can deliver an 80,000 volt charge has been unveiled by Chaotic Moon Studios, a Texas technology firm.
Called CUPID, Chaotic Unmanned Personal Intercept Drone it fires a taser, sanctioned by it’s human operators.
A company statement said:
“The drone can be deployed when an alarm is triggered. It can find a subject and send live video to the owner’s 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,”
There are already enough problems with law enforcement going way over the top with tasers. It seems it wont be long before we can be attacked remotely from the sky. I wonder how long it will be until the first court case where the cop claims it was a misunderstanding between him and the operator?
Being able to hunt people down by phone is open to abuse from the get go, and where there is something to exploit, there’s always a cop willing to do so.
