SkyJack, the flying hacker

According to @SamyKamkar‘s website, SkyJack is a drone engineered to autonomously seek out, hack, and wirelessly take over other drones within wifi distance, creating an army of zombie drones under your control.

The demonstration of SkyJack went viral after the announcement of Amazon’s PrimeAir program that aims to deliver purchases using drones in less than 30 minutes.

SkyJack is able to hack and control those drones for less than 200 $ using a Raspberry Pi and other low-cost hardware combined with widely used software frameworks like Node.JS.

You can discover the demonstration in this video (just below) and the howTo on this website or on GitHub.
