Produced for a brief entitled ‘Surprise Me’, the Predator Drone was designed as an adaption of Boston Dynamics’ Wildcat prototype quadruped robot.

The surprising nature of the project arises from the system it enforces, which is aimed at tackling the increase in obesity in society by unleashing the Predator drones into the wild (cities and towns) and supplying mandatory tracking wrist bands to all citizens. The bands track the amount of exercise that a person has undertaken in a day and if they have fallen short of a state enforced level of fitness, then the Predator Drone will hunt them down until they have burned the required amount of calories.

The project is fully intended as a satirical solution to a very real problem, however it succeeded as a surprising project, leaving the brief setter astonished and delighted!
