Audi Patrone Police Drone Concept

Sep 18, 2018

Category: Tech

While companies like Amazon and UPS are clamoring to get the rights to use flying drones for package delivery, there’s another application that seems a bit more practical and inevitable: law enforcement. Or at least that’s what designer Jin-jung Young envisions for the near future with his Audi Patrone concept.

The idea is actually quite brilliant — the VR-controlled drone would allow law enforcement to patrol cities without putting themselves or citizens in immediate danger. And it has the potential to give a larger and more accurate representation of civilian activities out in public. The prospect is only bolstered by the sound and beautiful design of this particular concept, with its sports car-inspired lines. We’re not sure the legal implications therein, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see this kind of tech deployed in the near future. [H/T: Yanko Design]
