Katsu recently debuted his spray-paint-equipped UAV at a Silicon Valley art fair, according to an article by Wired. Although the artist operates the aircraft remotely, the drone translates the directions through its first priority – staying aloft.
As such, Katsu says that he and his drone essentially collaborate on artwork. One objective of his innovation is to investigate how machines can transform art.
He intends to make his design open source, allowing other graffiti artists to test its potential.
