“Homemade” Drone Catcher Is Awesome, But It Is Really Complicated

Commercial solution to rogue drones are becoming more common today, but you can’t say the same for consumers who face similar pesky problem. Granted, consumers’ issues with drones buzzing around are more like annoyance (think houseflies) and privacy than anything else. That being said, if these errand drones spook you, then I guess you have the right to do something about it when it gets within your backyard. Depending on where you are located, you have several options and the Homemade Drone Catcher by Made it Extreme is one of them.

This High-tech Turret Can Detect And Remove Rogue Drones From The Sky

As much as I like drones, the sheer number of them buzzing in the sky has quickly put them on par with houseflies which means they are annoying and potentially dangerous. And that’s not to mention the intrusion of privacy to both everyday folks (not just celebrities, btw) and companies alike. With these new threats looming, they resulted in the creation of a whole new business opportunity: anti-drone technology and the anti-aircraft-like surveillance system you see here, called SkyDroner, is one of the many popping up in the market.

Artist Tom Galle Turns Recognizable Corporate Logos Into Weapons

NYC-based Internet artist/digital creative Tom Galle has recently started a new project which we are pretty confident it is going to catch on with the Internet. Entitled “Corp Gear,” this new project is a collection of weapons fashioned out of corporate logos. As you can see from the images, Galle has done a brilliant job in turning iconic corporate logos that we are familiar with into weapons. The collection, which only started earlier this month, so far saw Galle turning Nike very recognizable Swoosh logo into a blade (‘Nike Knife’), McDonald’s iconic Golden Arches into a brass knuckleduster (‘McDonalds Brass Knuckles’), Facebook’s blue ‘F’ branding into a crowbar (‘Facebook Crowbar’), and Mercedes-Benz’s pointed star into Shuriken, AKA ninja star (‘Mercedes Ninja Star’).

How Killing Them Softly Micro Shotgun Works In Real-Life And Yes, It Works!

First we have the weirdest confectionary, now there’s what we thought could be the craziest saw-off shotgun ever. Inspired by the movie Killing Them Softly (Plan B Entertainment, 2012), YouTuber Kjaskaar wants to find out if the sawed-off shotgun featured in the movie works in real-life. For the uninitiated, the shotgun featured in the ‘Poker Heist’ scene was nothing short of ridiculous. Unlike some sawed-off shotguns that have some inches lopped off, the Killing Them Softly shotgun has all of its barrel sawed off, pretty much leaving only the chambers. Continue reading How Killing Them Softly Micro Shotgun Works In Real-Life And Yes, It Works!

Slingshot With Laser Aiming Is Cool, But Try Not To Knock The Laser Out

I have an idea for a better aim with slingshot. Mind you. When we talked about slingshot, we are not talking about the Y-shaped contraption fashioned out of a branch of a tree. Definitely not those used by Dennis the Menace, or Bart Simpson. We are talking about metal projectile shooting contraption worthy of a hunter, complete with arm brace, powerful rubber bands and maybe even a laser pointer like the Assolar SS-12 Multi-function Hunting Laser Slingshot you see here. More on my idea later. First, we talked about Assolar SS-12 Multi-function Hunting Laser Slingshot. Continue reading Slingshot With Laser Aiming Is Cool, But Try Not To Knock The Laser Out

China’s Anti-Drone Gun Looks Like A Weapon Fit For Sci-Fi Movies

What you see here is China’s Wuhan law enforcement officer showing off the police’s new toy: a non-lethal drone-killing gun. Details on this unnamed device is sketchy at best, but the concept behind it is not so much different from DroneShield and Battelle’s iteration we saw last year in that the gun uses some sort of radio waves to cut signal between the operator and the infringing drones (more like hijacking it, actually), thereby forcing the drone to land. Though it is not known if the process will actually fry the drone entirely, thus making it drop out of the sky or if it will force it to land in a controlled manner like the two other makes we wrote about previously.

With This Type Of New Range Ammo, Your Gun Will Be A Lot Cleaner

The only time you see red small caliber projectile is probably on a tracer round (and even that aren’t entirely red/orange red), but the gloss red you see here is on every single projectile and no, these are no tracers, neither is the red for some vain, asesthetic purpose. The gloss red bullet is a new tech projectile called Synthetic Jacket Technology, or Syntech in short, developed by Federal Premium Ammunition/American Eagle. Four years in the making and over a million rounds expended, this glossy red projectile may look like like a lipstick lopped off its case, but it is no less deadly than any gunpowder-powered projectiles. So why does it look so much like plastic? Continue reading With This Type Of New Range Ammo, Your Gun Will Be A Lot Cleaner

New Anti-drone Gun Can Bring Down A Rogue Drone From 1.2 Miles Away

Using electronic means to intercept and safely put an errand drone to the ground is not new, but Sydney-based DroneShield’s sci-fi-ish contraption you see here, aptly called DroneGun, stands out as the first that can do so from up to 1.2 miles (1.9 kilometers) away. The longer reach has obvious benefits and among them is upping the odds of interception since the law enforcer would less likely to alert the intruding pilot who would otherwise make a run for it when he or she detects something is amiss like, you know, a SUV making a huge ding on its arrival.

This Rifle-like Weapon Will Bring Down Rogue Drones In A Controlled Manner

Anti-drone sentiment is high in this day and age. To everyday people, it is the intrusion of privacy and to the government, it is clearly a security threat that needs to be addressed. Having said that, homeland security and law enforcement organizations around world are working relentlessly in search for a solution, resorting to means like using birds of prey like the hawk and drone with net to take errand drones out of the sky. More recently, a bazooka-like weapon was developed to ensnare drone from the ground and today, research and development outfit Battelle, showcased a less damaging solution that will bring down a drone in a controlled manner with an assault rifle-like device called DroneDefender. Continue reading This Rifle-like Weapon Will Bring Down Rogue Drones In A Controlled Manner

NES Zapper Gun Won’t Kill But This Glock ’NES Zapper Gun’ Pistol Will Kill

There’s always an inherent danger when a life-taking weapon looks too much like a toy or vice versa, but apparently, that kind of confusion is not on the top of gun customizer Precision Syndicate LLC’s mind when it turned a real working Glock pistol into a NES Zapper Gun lookalike. And by turning, we do mean giving the deadly weapon a ridiculously awesome paint job that reminiscent of the original NES Zapper gun. For the uninitiated, NES Zapper gun is a console toy gun that was designed for shooting pixel ducks in Nintendo’s Duck Hunt game.
