In what must be a one-of-a-kind project, a visual media student at the Rochester Institute of Technology has installed a Fujifilm Instax camera on a DJI drone, making it possible to shoot instant photos from the air.

Nicholas Kundrat created the drone/instant camera hybrid for a new course called 'Visual Media Innovation Project.' Bringing the project to life started with a DJI Flamewheel 450 quadcopter kit as the base with an Instax Mini 25. From Kundrat's Vimeo page:

'A servo motor was then fitted onto the camera and plugged into the auxiliary port on the receiver to be controlled by the SX6i transmitter. A flip of the aux switch on the transmitter fires the camera and before you know it a picture is ejected from the camera.'

The drone can fly up to twelve minutes with the camera and motor attached. Kundrat hopes his creation will challenge views of drones as dangerous and harmful by creating a positive connection between observer and drone. If nothing else, it brings a whole new meaning to the term 'photo bomb.'
