Intel acquires drone company – Ascending Technologies – light painting is the new “hello world” for drones

Drone-1

Intel Acquires Ascending Technologies : Ascending Technologies GmbH.

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).


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
