Spider-Man web catches suspects like flies


A Spider-Man-style web designed to subdue belligerent suspects has been demonstrated for South Australian police.

It works by deploying a high-tensile net across a 16sq m area at 6m per second, covering a person in seconds.

They are immediately restricted by the net strings and can be pulled down to the ground, cutting off any chance of escape. The net uses compressed air – not an explosive charge or electrical current – to operate.
