To express its sheer excitement Ascending Technologies produced another brief drone light painting episode. The AscTec Falcon 8 draws “happy to join” and the “Intel” logo. https://youtu.be/XvGS5fqLHbE The patented V-form drone mounted with a LED was controlled by the flight planning software AscTec Navigator to perform the painting fully automated. The light painting is done by setting a camera to leave its shutter open for a long exposure, while the LED drone is flying its preprogrammed missions. The bright light leaves glowing trails, which form depictions according to the flown drone flight paths. Ascending Technologies had used that technique just before holidays to produce world’s first drone-driven light paintings of any real quality.
Ok, drones makers, this is your “hello world” – if you’re serious about being a drone maker, you need to do a light painting (photo above is the INTEL light painting with a drone).
