Intern shot with 80,000 volt drone-mounted stun gun

An unfortunate intern at a tech conference in Texas collapsed to ground after being shot with a 80,000 volt stun gun mounted to a drone.

In a presentation at the South by Southwest Interactive conference in Austin, Chaotic Moon Studios showcased their new Chaotic Unmanned Personal Intercept Drone.

Designed to incapacitate potential intruders before police arrives, "CUPID" is equipped with a powerful stun gun.

The intern remained motionless on the floor after being struck down by the 80,000 volt gun.

In comparison, tasers used by the police in the UK generate a highest peak voltage of 50,000.

According to the company, he has recovered after the demonstration.

William Hurley, one of the Chaotic Moon Studios founders later tweeted a picture of the intern, who appeared intact while "enjoying his celebratory steak."

Campaign urges people to be more 'Cyber Streetwise'

The government has launched a campaign called Cyber Streetwise to encourage consumers and business to be more aware of ways to help safeguard their online safety.

A new website offers interactive resources and online videos for people to gain skills and knowledge to take control of their cyber security while shopping, banking or socialising online.
