looks like a leg chopper, it would be amazing to see someone riding such device to its potential, somehow I think safety concerns will not allow it to market wide market, but great to see it developing.

Seems odd they wouldn't get screening to cover the blades. That was the only big danger of the testing. These are inevitable in consumer form. 3 years is my guess for the first to market.

Someone shot down a $200 drone with a $3M Patriot missile
(""That quadcopter that cost 200 bucks from Amazon.com did not stand a chance against a Patriot," said US Army General David Perkins."):

And you don't even need Speed Racer to extend his sawblades out to chop up the one you're pursuing. ;)

Until someday whips one of these out:

small_Drone_Shield.jpg (59.43 KiB) Viewed 150 times
Drone Shield looks like a firearm, but it doesn't shoot bullets. Instead, it can send such an intense signal towards a drone that it will simply lose its bearings and float down towards the ground. This solution is much better than, say, a shotgun, because a shotgun can't typically hit a target 2 kilometers away, and if it does make impact, the drone isn't going to fare too well.

Aluada looks like a good design. The CGI doesn't make it look real at this point, but they seem to have a good cockpit look going compared to the open motorcycle look others are going for.
