Turn your DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter into a spray paint delivery device with the open source Icarus One instruction set and some basic electronic components:
The ICARUS ONE is hardware and software that allows for the artists to use spray enamel with the reach and scale of a drone. Conceived by artist KATSU, the device unlocks the potential of artistic expression through the use of drone technology. Touch surfaces like never before.
The ICARUS ONE team is made up of artists and developers and KATSU’s who love the marriage of technology and art. We’re a community working to push the boundaries of what is possible with painting drones.
In another branch of research into spray painting quadcopters, you can check out an attempt using a 3D Robotics IRIS+ and see more photos of the circuit assembly for the Icarus One on the Adafruit Learning System.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
