Once you realise how boring your neighbourhood is from the air, that expensive quadcopter you bought should find a good home in the rafters of your garage. But don’t bury it too deep, you’ll need access to it around Halloween every year because Alton Porter has come up with the perfect use for your forgotten drone: turn it into a flying banshee.
There’s no explanation of how this floating ghost came to be, but watching the video it’s not hard to deconstruct. All you’ll need is a hollow plastic skull, a pair of glowing red LEDs, some lightweight fabric to complete the costume, and the quadcopter you’ve already lost interest in.
Put them all together and you’ve got the perfect Halloween decoration that you can actually take with you trick-or-treating and terrorise the whole neighbourhood. Just make sure you’re extra careful at the controls, because long strands of dangling fabric and spinning rotors definitely don’t mix. [Alton Porter via Motherboard via Laughing Squid]
