Japanese Security Drone Chases Robbers As They Flee The Scene
- 05/20/2013 02:19 PM EDT Sci/Tech
A security company, Secom, in Japan is launching a new private security drone. As seen in the test video above, the soon-to-be-released drone would wait until a thief left the scene of the robbery and then follow.
Too often, security cameras miss a suspects face, but this drone would be able to circle the suspect at close range -- and if the suspect fled in a car, the drone is fast enough to follow.
The drones will reportedly be available to rent for around $50 a month.
