Sure, the last thing we all may hear is the buzzing of a distant killer drone, but at least we can chuckle as they tag members of the Kardashian clan's gigantic product placements.
An enterprising graffiti artist named KATSU figured out how to get a drone to use a spray can. Even though it's rather crude, this could well herald a new era of street art — a new and probably really annoying era of anything being within the reach of taggers. "It turned out surprisingly well," KATSU told Wired, "It's exciting to see its first potential use as a device for vandalism."
Let's just hope future vandals pick targets as responsibly as KATSU did. As a New Yorker, I know this poster. It's a very big poster, and it looms over a very busy and popular intersection at the entrance to the fashionable (and completely played out for about 20 years now) neighborhood of SoHo. Even if you like Kardashians and Jenners, it's just one of those gigantic billboards that makes you say "ugh, jeez, did we really need a 60-foot product placement right there?" Not that it's really worse than the other 60-foot posters that adorn that spot, unless you really don't like Kardashians and Jenners.
I hear there's an election coming up. Those have a lot of posters, right? Now if there was only a way for drones to tag horrible campaign ads as they beam through the airwaves. One can only hope.
