Police Drones Wield Big Nets To Catch Other Drones
You need a drone to catch a drone. And also a big net. via popsci
The future is clumsy as heck. Yesterday, Tokyo Police launched their first anti-drone squad, a team designed to enforce new rules banning drones from dense urban areas. To stop bad guys with drones, they have big net-wielding drones of their own, built to catch the offending craft in the act. If that sounds like it’d be sleek, that’s exactly wrong.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
