You're gonna want to steer clear of this CUPID. The Chaotic Unmanned Personal Intercept Drone, or "stun copter," can deliver 80,000 volts of pure projectile terror directly into the skin of an ill-intentioned hoodlum. This is serious business for Chaotic Moon, the folks behind SharkPunch and the Pizza Hut touch table. The Austin-based design studio created the flying machine as a tech demo, but CUPID could be quickly brought to production whenever a personal security or law enforcement client sees fit. This prototype unit is based on a Tarot Hexacopter, originally designed to carry a digital SLR for video and aerial photo shoots. With a Phazzer Dragon on board, however, a few modifications made this an entirely different beast.
The objective here isn't to have a copter autonomously wandering city streets, detaining suspects until the police arrive (though the device could theoretically handle such a task). Instead, due to legal requirements, the drone is operated by a pilot, who flies the craft manually, with a second person tasked with triggering the stun gun. Eventually, such a device could be used to aid police in subduing a suspect until officers are able to arrive on the scene. An embedded camera provides a live video feed to operators, who can evaluate the situation before deciding to strike. Since a public park demonstration would likely result in some pretty stirred-up locals, Chaotic Moon invited us up to its Austin offices for a closed-door session during SXSW.

“Chaotic” and 80,000 volts don’t belong in the same sentence, much less the same device.
Political dissidents and undesirables on notice.
Is it immune to .50 caliber?
Yeah, but then how else are they going to come up with a cool name?
Special Tyrannical Unmanned Personal Intercept Drone....
Never mind. I can see why that one never made the list.
The Toclafane from Doctor Who come to mind.
I’d say #8 birdshot would do a number on it.
Undead “Info Ping” to article.
Eyes on the skies.
I have no doubt this will be aimed directly at us.
Nully, your ping list may want a look at this as well.
Double ought, two shotty, two differing directions.
But you can’t hit what you can’t see.
Super loud drone. It would work well on deaf people who are not looking behind them.
I hope we never hear about accidental discharges that unfortunately bring down such helpful drones. /sarc
Get real good at whatever you carry. I practice at a rate of 50+ rounds every 40 days. But I’ll up it to 100 rounds and include moving targets from now on.
The army developed a pain gun that made people throw away any metal. (If you have fillings, you’re in for meeting with God.) They never deployed it in Iraq because of “bad optics.” But you can bet they’d deploy it against those evil Tea Partiers and former vets and 2nd amendment terrorists.
Wouldn’t those be great on the border? At least until the mines can be laid. ;o]
Sam Cooke was so good...
The uLEO’s just popped a woodie.
Yes, he had quite a remarkable voice!
