Cuddly Drones: When Kids Design Drones

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

We discuss and showcase the creations developed during our "Cuddly Drones" project.
This educational project challenged children (7-10) to design actually flying drones that they thought would be useful to society.
From serious to delightful and arty, everything was there: disco drones (for use in clubs, a big discoball attached below), window cleaning drones (so architecture could take stranger shapes and still be cleaned properly), karaoke drones, farming-smoothymaking drones, candy dispensing drones, mind-reading drones, trash pickup drones (just throw it in the air). The list is long and wonderful.
The project is part of a year-long exploration of emerging surveillance culture, exploring the democratization of surveillance tools. How do teach children to critically explore this drone-filled future?
In collaboration with
- Ruben Pater (designer of the Drone Survival Guide)
- Jasper van Loenen (of "Drone It Yourself kit" fame)
