A Munich prison demonstrated a new drone-catching device on Wednesday (October 14), the first pilot project of its kind in Germany. Bavaria's justice minister Georg Eisenreich tried out the Dropster net gun, which uses compressed gas to shoot out a net to catch the drone mid-flight and bring it to the ground.
