Protestors and rioters may now have to worry about more than just police on foot, thanks to the “Skunk.” An aerial drone manufactured by South African company Desert Wolf, the Skunk is capable of shooting up to 80 pepper spray containing rounds of non-lethal ammunition per second while flashing strobe lights and shining lasers at its targets. One of the first customers to buy the new device is, surprisingly, a mining company. RT’s Ameera David discusses the Skunk and the implications it may have on protests with Steve Rambam, CEO of Pallorium.
