WATCH: CUPID Stun Copter Drone Takes Down a Man With Taser

While many people think SXSW is all about concerts and films, one crazy video taken at this year’s SXSW festival has a decidedly futuristic vibe. In the video above, a “stun copter” outfitted with a taser takes down an intern.

The drone taser system is called CUPID, which stands for Chaotic Unmanned Personal Intercept Drone. It was developed Chaotic Moon Studios.

The video claims that the stun copter is capable of detaining subjects until the police arrive on scene. The taser on the CUPID drone delivers 80,000 volts.

CUPID is not yet available for sale. When it is, however, it will be controlled by a smartphone app.

How scary is this drone? Between the buzzing sound it makes while in the air and its taser arsenal, criminals are gonna be shaking in their boots.
