Drones to paint outdoor murals

Already being used for delivering packages and monitoring wild life, unmanned aerial vehicles may soon be used for painting murals outdoors. A team led by Paul Kry from McGill University programmed tiny drones to create dot drawings — an artistic technique known as stippling. “I thought it would be great to have drones paint portraits of famous computer scientists on them,” Kry said.  The drones are so small that they fit in the palm of a hand and so light that even very slight air currents can toss the drones off course.
