The age of robotic graffiti is born. KATSU, a well-known graffiti artist and vandal, used a Phantom drone to paint a giant red scribble across Kendall Jenner’s face on one of New York City’s largest and most viewed billboards. By all accounts, it is the first time that a drone has been deployed for a major act of public vandalism. This is only the beginning of drone-based street art. KATSU explained that the Calvin Klein tag was a proof of concept — he’ll be releasing a more user-friendly version of the graffiti drone “very soon,” he says.

DiRT Rally is a game about realistic rally driving, and nothing else. There’s no glamor, no in-your-face EDM or punk music, no showcase events, no Ken Block or Gymkhanas. DiRT Rally puts you in a car with a copilot, and throws you down point to point tracks against the clock. It’s rallying at its most basic, and it’s great. It’s an Early Access Game on Steam. This means it’s playable but unfinished, so there’s plenty of time for developer Codemasters to add to the game, but DiRT Rally is already excellent.
Think about a system that understands where you are in your environment, and is able to exploit that information in order to create an unbelievable augmented reality experience. Think about playing a game where the storyline involves you. Consider a future full of movies you star in, experiences that seem real, and scenarios, in our case, that are freakishly frightening. This is in your house. This is in your apartment. This is in your environment. This is Night Terrors.
As we know from the Taken movies, Liam Neeson is a bit of a family guy himself. So who better to guest-star in Family Guy’s 250th episode airing this Sunday?
