"Not as difficult as stomaching Trump as the president of the United States," he said. Eventually, he'd like for the technology to be something "a young curious vandal in Idaho could use."
KATSU specifically contacted us about his new and improved drone "in response to [Trump's] inauguration."
As you can see in the video above, you wouldn't want to use this to paint a mural, but it's a huge leap up from what KATSU showed us in our 2014 interview.

Much as he did for the Icarus One in 2015, KATSU eventually plans to release open-source instructions with software and hardware specs for making the improved quadcopter, which he prefers to call the "Icarus Two" or the "KATSU Drone." He said it's "obvious" more diverse color palettes and sophisticated drawings will come in the future, but for now he's focused on getting artists and individuals to "create art/technology" for each other.
"Hopefully young vandals will be motivated to create and iterate on the project themselves," he said.
