Perfect weapon for drones haters

Good news for the anti-drone crowd: England-based OpenWorksEngineering created a bazooka that can take down drones by deploying a net and parachute to bring them back to the ground.

The aptly-named SkyWall100 has a 100-meter range and comes with a smart scope that helps users properly aim and time their shots. The 22-pound launcher is being marketed as a cost-effective and portable way to deal with unwanted drones.

The company also says it only takes eight seconds to reload the bazooka, which should make it easier for a single person to target multiple drones in succession.
