Don't go flying a drone nilly-willy in Tokyo or it might get DENIED by an intercepter

Japanese police have unveiled a new ally in the sky to help bring down illegal drones, or those flying through restricted airspace. The interceptor drone features a 3 by 2-meter net that is capable of taking down other drones while minimizing the risk of the aircraft falling and injuring civillians.

Officers on the ground will warn the illegal drone’s operator with a loudspeaker to leave the area. If the warning is ignored, the interceptor takes flight and captures the offending drone.


Almost half as cool as a bird of prey.
