Ukraine Police try to Blind Drone with Laser

Ukraine police try to blind drone cameras during violent struggle in Maidan Square.

I don’t mean to belittle what is going on in Ukraine in any way, but this video caught my attention from a technical standpoint.

First of all, remote drones are being used to capture images that show proof of what is happening in that country. And secondly, the police force purposefully tried to blind the drone camera by shinning a laser at it.

We will see drones used a lot more in the future to capture events like this, and I am sure opposition forces will increase tactics to either disable or destroy them.
