As a spin off from Swiss ETH Zurich University, the Fotokite Pro is the drone that CNN, BBC and many other News media are already using to easily create live aerial video for example to report live when people were queuing to vote at the US election, it is the only drone approved to be used by the FCC because it is tethered. Being tethered allows it to be lighter since it doesn't fly with a battery, it can fly for an unlimited amount of time getting power through the cable, it's safe because it is tethered not needing on board GPS, on board computer vision, and more. A live low-latency uncompressed Full HD video downlink enables effective framing and live broadcast using an external HDMI or SDI port. The Fotokite Phi in the consumer version, more compact, lighter and most affordable GoPro-carrying quadcopter yet that was successfully crowdfunded for $249 each at Indiegogo.
The COI Site Tokyo University of the Arts created uses this high quality reproduction of the Vincent Van Gogh self-portrait and they program features to superimpose using an Epson LCD projector to make it look like the painting comes alive. The effect is very impressive. Perhaps for Tokyo 2020 they should exhibit a whole range of famous Art reproductions and statues and have them all come alive, also using sensors, cameras, artificial intelligence smart conversationals systems, to have all the art pieces talk themselves about who painted the originals, stories about why it was painted like that, funny interactions where the painting can talk to you and react to you walking by. The applications seem endless as when the projector projects white it just functions as lighting on the reproduction, but then when those animations subtly superimprose it can really give the effect of movement in the painting.
