Bjoern Schuelke makes these amazing pieces of interactive art. The one pictured above is “Drone #2“. [video] Check out the website for a lot more sculptures and even a few pictures inside the Artists studio.
The futuristic appearance of “Drone #2″ seems like a requisite from a science fiction film.The autonomous hi-tech construct, consisting of solar cells, heat sensors,propellors, videochips and a TFT monitor is suspended from the ceiling and reacts to the “warmblooded” spectator without him or her being able to directly influence its movement.
