Ars Electronica Futurelab has created a fascinating performance using drones to demonstrate their Smart Atoms technology. The Smart Atoms allow the hand-moving of one quadcopter to be mimicked by an entire group. To show this, Ars Electronica Futurelab has turned to making some very impressive unmanned light paintings.
The group sends their LED equipped quadcopters called Spaxels up into the night and proceeds to draw pictures. Documented using long exposure photography, you can see drawings like a teapot and “Spaxels” spelled-out high in the sky.
See this impressive technology used as a new-age art medium in the video below!
