Police have a new enemy to worry about: the graffiti drone.
Graffiti artist Katsu has created a drone equipped with spray paint that can tag places few dare dream of reaching, Wired magazine reported. To make matters worse for authorities, the designs will be open source.
“It’s like 50 percent me having control and 50 percent the drone kind of like saying, ‘I need to turn this way to accomplish what you want me to do but still maintain myself so I don’t just fly into the wall and explode.’ Which it does, all the time,” Katsutold Arthur Holland Michel of Bard College’s Center for the Study of the Drone.
“I do have this little video game-inspired fantasy of lying in my bed, sending my drones out my bedroom window, having them render my tags all over the city and then flying back home to me, like, in my bed,” he added.
