Mistletoe drones on and on…

A Parrot AR.Drone

Plenty of stuff yet to come for the Mistletoe Diary this year – though I’m a bit behind schedule.

Time for some light relief from San Francisco, where “interactive artists” (what does that actually mean?) George Zisiadis and Mustafa Khan have made a Mistletoe Drone out of a Parrot AR.Drone (pictured in unaltered form on the right).

They wrapped their drone in tinsel and mistletoe and have taken it to Union Square in San Francisco to buzz unsuspecting couples.

Zisiadis is quoted as saying

“All my work is about playfully re-imagining the world around us. Drones have been causing all sorts of paranoia lately and I wanted to reframe them from being something scary and ominous to being fun and human. It’s not about the technology, its about how we use it.”

Here’s a video of the thing in action…
