Building drone defense systems with household appliances

Workshop by Ruben Pater and Tijmen Schep.

Short: In the suburbia of the future, the peace and privacy of consumer society is under threat by digital peeping toms and robotic pranksters. Now that every teenager has a Mediamarkt or HEMA drone, ordinary mischief can turn neighborhoods into drone-infested zones of terror. During this workshop we made use of household appliances and off-the-shelf materials to built drone defense systems. Clad in aprons, armed with brooms, homemade weapons, and bottle rockets, we formed the vanguard of domestic drone defense.
