we're members of the Ars Electronica Futurelab in Linz / Austria, trying to create a fantastic drone-event September 1st this year.
It's happening during the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, with about 100.000 visitors.
We try to organize the biggest outdoor-drone-swarm ever, flying above the danube river...
Even more fun, we would love to do a diy-drone tinkerer workshop - an open lab in a huge tent at the park, where enthusiasts and newbies, experts and freestylers... would present their drones, exchanging experiences, holding lectures and panels and give hands-on-workshops to interessted visitors of all ages, and get them infected with the drone virus...
We are now starting to look for local drone-experts and aficionados - to start this endeavor.
... to make it a huge drone party here.
Every help is very appreciated! Please spread the word - in order to find lot's of collabs and participants...
If you do know THE expert we have to talk with... please let us know!
I'm quoting Chris Anderson here:
>Nice to hear from you--this sounds very cool! We're a community site, so you should post your question, just as it is >below (but with a picture or two, please), as a blog post here for community response. I'm sure you'll get a great >response and many volunteers.
Thank's Chris! I did!
And we do hope for reaction and hints... Also experiences with diy-meetings that already happened... What was good, what didn't realy work... loads of ambition is here already - and we want to see it happen!
hoping for response!
P.S: The Video shows partly the area where it should happen (city of Linz). A goPro is hanging on a Hummingbird (Ascending Technologies) I know, that is not realy a diy-drone... but we had to start somewhere ;-)
