James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Tech/Art and Stage

Posted on | September 26, 2014 | No Comments

I constantly tell my students that you never know where you are going to find new and cool ideas.

Often, maybe always, new ideas come from the intersection of disciplines with little connection to the naked eye.

If you are not a follower of ADWeek you should be as this is the home of some very odd and exciting ideas.

Drones and drama is something I just discovered.

 Cirque du Soleil. The performance troupe teamed up with the drone experts at engineering school ETH Zurich to create a short film about a tinker who accidentally trips the breaker in his building, then proceeds to have a whirl in the dark with a group of flying lampshades.



Imagine what our kids could be learning and doing at school with these ideas of drones and art?

What is even more interesting is the explanation video.

So now the question is what can you do with your drone and a bit of know-how?
