Video: In the United States, it's illegal to interfere with any aircraft soaring over your property. So if your neighbour's drone is caught spying on you, you can't just shoot it out of the air. But apparently the laws are different in Sweden, where you can take down drones using impossibly dangerous weapons; such as a rocket-propelled katana sword.

Video: They're fun, but Nerf's blasters, even the most powerful ones, aren't known for their impeccable accuracy. So if you find yourself in the heat of battle surrounded by opponents, you'd be much better off with this Nerf grenade in your arsenal, which blasts foam darts in all directions.
Last week, an amateur drone pilot landed his DJI quadcopter on the deck of Britain's newest and most advanced aircraft carrier. The incident was accidental, but highlights the irony of how difficult it is to neutralise threats from smaller aircraft like drones that are slowly filling the skies. But perhaps modifying a missile that can hit speeds of mach 2.2 isn't the best solution to the problem?
Following promises of "fire and fury" from US president Donald Trump if it continues its belligerence, North Korea released a statement on Wednesday threatening to launch an "enveloping strike" at the island of Guam, a US territory in the Pacific. Here's why Pyongyang thinks Guam is a worthy target.
Just like anything with a lithium-based battery has the potential to explode, just about any tech product that's considered "smart" is potentially hackable. Which is why one clever hacker was able to break the Armatix iP1, a smart gun that is designed to only be fired by a person wearing a paired smartwatch.
Unlike an RC car that will simply crash into a wall if you lose control, an expensive drone can potentially fly for kilometres after it stops heeding your remote's commands. But while a shotgun can blast your treasured robot out of the sky before causes any trouble, this net-firing, air-powered, anti-drone cannon seems like a much safer solution.
Video: YouTube's Giaco Whatever, who previously terrified us with a custom Nerf blaster capable of firing foam darts faster than the speed of sound, has now designed and built an automatic BB gun powered by a 4000 PSI air tank that's easily one of the most dangerous creations you'll find online — so of course you want to see it in action.
North Korea says it has successfully tested its first intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM). The country voted most likely to start WWIII says it can now strike targets anywhere in the world, but military experts believe the missile, which flew for 40 minutes, is a medium range weapon that presents no threat to the United States.
Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our weekly roundup of the fanciest toys that will have you even more upset you're not able to make it to the San Diego Comic-Con this year. And if you've ever lamented not having an Arnold Schwarzenegger figure that looks like he just took the day off to visit Bunnings, you'll find exactly what you're looking for this week.
Video: It's only May, but there's a good chance we've already found our song of the winter. Eclectic Method is back with another pop culture mashup, but this time he's created an incredibly catchy drum and bass earworm by painstakingly assembling the sounds of video game weapons being fired and reloaded.
Video: YouTuber Giaco Whatever is on a quest to build a Nerf blaster that will do more than just leave a tiny welt on someone. He's constructed an air-powered dart cannon that generates 400 PSI of pressure, and when cranked to full power, it can apparently send a Nerf dart flying at Mach 2.3, twice the speed of sound, or around 2840km/h.
Video: Even the most mild-mannered among us can't spend an afternoon inside a sprawling IKEA warehouse without leaving full of rage. But if you want to drown your frustrations, do it in cheap hot dogs and soft serve ice cream instead of walking out the door, determined to weaponise those tiny IKEA pencils.
There really is no remedy against a biological weapon attack, but Johns Hopkins University researchers hope the four-year, $US5.7 ($8) million grant DARPA recently awarded them will change that. The aim is for the researchers to create a bio-control system able to deploy single-cell fighters that will hunt down specific pathogens and destroy their lethality.
US military bigwigs gathered in Orlando this week for the annual AirWarfare Symposium to discuss big plans for big weapons that do big damage. According to a report, the biggest unfunded project that US Special Operations Command hopes to push through is a C-130 that's equipped with a power laser weapon.
