Why a drone called Cupid is fitted with a stun gun

9 April 2014 Last updated at 08:06 BST

A flying Taser-wielding drone has been created by Texas design firm Chaotic Moon.

The device known as Chaotic Unmanned Personal Intercept Drone - Cupid - is capable of delivering 80,000 volts of electricity through a wired dart.

The company's co-founder, Whurley, explained that they wanted to take a concept that has been seen in video games and science fiction films and show that it could be built.

In an experiment not to be repeated at home, Click's Spencer Kelly reports on the demonstration which sees a company intern zapped under controlled conditions.
