    Did anyone catch the Gadget Show on Monday?

    One of the presenters built a new fitness drone that tracks you and if you fall behind your pace it shoots you as incentive..

    It was for a future tech segment, and they built a working prototype.

    Uk people (or proxy people) can catch up here

    Ha, it shot you with an airsoft gun.

    They had judges vote for the best of the two ideas, it was up against a wearable camera headset that sensed when you were looking at something interesting and took the photo. I was sure that would win, as the drone while a working prototype, a gun on it, airsoft or not is just asking for trouble.. But the drone won!

    I'll try to find some pictures or a clip on youtube.

    Nice idea in theory, something that can follow you and shout enthusiasm / dish out punishment. But the fact it's a gun just makes it worse.
