Crowd control drones
From the BBC comes a note on a crowd control drone: South Africa-based Desert Wolf told the BBC it had secured the sale of 25 units to a mining company after showing off the tech at a trade show. It is marketing the device as a “riot control copter” that can tackle crowds “without endangering the lives of security staff”.

“…that can tackle crowds “without endangering the lives of security staff”
But the safety of the crowd? Not so much.
But if you don’t want to get pepper sprayed or shot with rubber bullets, you shouldn’t be in a crowd in the first place, right? Um… *mental image of downtown Boston, Minneapolis, New York, Los Angeles…*
