Weird Illuminated Sky Painting

Quadcopter Lightwriting

WISP is a long exposure light writing experiment. Patrick Dinnen, Dre Labre, and I fabricated an LED rig and mounted it under a quadcopter. The result is illuminated patterns in the sky.

WISP uses a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) shield to communicate changes in the light pattern mid flight. The flight consists of a pilot, photographer, and artist.

The WISP project was featured in The Makers Nation - Maker Spotlight and Pecha Kucha Toronto where it was featured as the Pecha Kucha presentation of the day in January.
