A new gadget can defend your home from drones

A new gadget can defend your home from drones
DDC

We're seeing more drones in the news than ever before. Computer- or radio-controlled quadcopters are becoming less expensive. They can be cool, or they can be creepy.

We're even hearing about hacking drones that hijack your Wi-Fi and steal your passwords from the sky. If a drone flew over your house and invaded your privacy or hacked your computer, would you be ready?

That's the question one new Kickstarter project wants to answer. Domestic Drone Countermeasures (DDC) is a company that's searching for funding for its anti-drone technology. Here's what DDC wants to do:

The intent of DDC's Personal Drone Detection System is not to counter military drones. They fly too high and are too sophisticated. Our intent is to keep your privacy safe from your neighbors and people you may not know who are flying small drones near your home or office. The Personal Drone Detection Systems are intended to counter small, personal drones with cameras and other sensors that are not being regulated.
