Light painting at SciBono


Tech4Africa will be at SciBono this year, we (Arnold, Nico and me) visited there a couple of nights ago and did some light painting using neopixel equiped quadcopters and freakin’ lazers!

Thanks also to Richard for coordinating and Michael Ellis and his team at SciBono for their support on the night.

We are doing two talks this year at Tech4Africa – please vote if you have not done so yet:
Build your own drone ( &
3D print a flying robot (

We used 3 quadcopters – a DJI phantom, DJI F450 with DJI ESC and motors and a custom build. The building colour lines were made using a blue and green laser.  The image was captured on a Canon SLR camera.
