Reportedly, in Tokyo, local gangs have started using drones to transport drugs across the city.

In response, the police are using net-carrying drones to try to capture these packets mid-air.

The gangs are counter-attacking with their own net-drones to try and drop police drones.

In a statement with the Tokyo police, they say they "Haven't had this much fun in years"

@International

crime allows you to pilot drones
law enforcement allows you to pilot drones
soldiering allows you to pilot drones

I got into the wrong business, they're never gonna make writing drones

@Archaeomancer @International

dunno if the height's available, I haven't really read up on some of the experimental limitation-pushing stuff :\

@sydneyfalk @International Depends where you live. There are usually licenses you can get. Could be a cool advertising venture.

@Archaeomancer @International

I hope soon they find out billboard-applying drones would be cheaper than workers and safety gear/LED power consumption, and start having little 'bots all putting up the adverts

because dammit, if the robots are gonna be everywhere, the vocation of advertising work deserves to get cannibalized into nonexistence first

(I am in no way biased by the fact I cannot promote myself in any way. nope. ;P )

@halcy @International

I was more thinking the composition end of things, but this is gorgeous and lovely all the same ^_^

(trust me, my handwriting is terrible)

@International And who catches the drone catching drone catching drones? 😂

@International This is the cyberpunk future we were promised. We live in it

@etam @ink_slinger it certainly destroyed my phone for a couple days. Got overwhelmed by the text messages.
pretty good for a dumb joke told to me in a bar :blobcheeky:

@International this reads like the backstory of an anime about fighting drones in the skies of Tokyo.

@International this reminds me of kite fighting, with sharp wire to cut the other person's line. mean sport but it's kind of beautiful because it makes the kite's lives finite
