Drones seem to be the new tech to cash in on these days. Every week a new model is released by some crowd-funded indie company looking to be the best in the skies with drones that fly themselves, deliver parcels, provide emergency medical assistance or do one of many other infinite options. But to be honest, we're not too fussed about that. What drone technology has opened up for us, is the ability to paint spots that previously were impossible.
We all saw Katsu take on Kendall Jenner's Calvin Klein billboard in a stunt that probably sparked the most awareness of the concept, which is no surprise coming from Katsu and the media swarm that always picks up on his latest stunt.
The latest cab off the rank with 'drone graff' technology is an open source drone modification found on MakerBot Thingiverse
, providing downloadable plans for attachments allowing users to strap a can of the new MTN Water Based 100 (coming very soon to MTN Australia) can to the 'Flone
' drone. The small can allows the drone to fly without the hinderance of a full size can, and is also odourless, for that extra element of stealth. Obviously right now the paintings left behind are pretty clumsy, but like all things, this is just the start, pitching a new idea that could lead to anything. Just keep an eye out for these things!
