Hack A Day Attaches Electric Shock Equipment to Quadcopter Drone

The Blaze - It’s not the first drone packing heat. Nor is it the first DIY weaponized drone (see the quadrotor drone equipped with a machine gun). But it could very well be the first drone hacked in such a way that it zaps the victims it touches.

Meet the “TaserDrone”:

The weaponized drone, also known as “ShockDrone,” was modified “to pack a punch” from a Parrot AR Drone by the group “Hack A Day.” Here’s how they did it:
To add the shocker attachment, we had to reduce weight as much as possible. To do this, all stickers and extra material was removed from the “indoor” hull of the AR Drone. We chose the indoor version because it has this night light frame that extends out past the blades to protect them. This was perfect for allowing it to bump into people.
We then made two tracks with aluminum tape around the entire hull. These were connected with wire directly to the capacitor in a disposable camera. Another weight reduction was to remove all extraneous pieces of the camera. Not only did this make it lighter, but it allowed the entire circuit to be hidden inside the hull. Only a little bit of carving was necessary to make enough space.

The Huffington Post describes the hack as demonstrating “how [drones] will be used in the future to hunt Man,” like in “The Most Dangerous Game.”

As for the victim in the video, Hack A Day writes “Jared” is an electrician himself and “seemed survive the ordeal.”

Drones May Well Be the 'Locusts' That Come Out from the Smoke of the Bottomless Pit

And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads. And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man. And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

"The shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon."
