A student at the Rochester Institute of Technology had a creative idea for his Visual Media Innovation Project this past semester: he created the first (to our knowledge) instant camera drone by hacking a Fuji Instax Mini 8 camera onto a DJI Flamewheel f450 drone kit.
Built by recent graduate Nick Kundrat, the drone does exactly what you might expect it to. In this video of its maiden flight on April 23rd of this year, you see the drone taking off, capturing images, and dropping them onto the ground like… well kind of like a pigeon pooping on an unsuspecting tourists in NYC.
At least that’s the image that came to mind for us. Check it out for yourself below:
