over the years, we’ve seen some incredibly artistic interpretations of thanksgiving — from painterly plates, to balloon figures fashioned for the famous parade. this year, technology is invited to the party, and we take a humorous look at how drones helped a team of robotics-specialists cook up some special meals for the big day.  

thanksgiving drone

 

 

the team over at autel robotics tried cooking a full thanksgiving dinner using its x‑star premium drone. the video documents the making of carrots, potatoes, a small turkey, and even a pumpkin pie. while propellers peel the skin off the potatoes and carrots with surprising ease, the egg beater ‘attachments’ used to whip the pastry fillings make quite a mess. for the turkey, a small piece of poultry is hilariously hooked up to string, and tethered to the edge of the drone. via remote control, the drone flies the turkey into a giant pot of oil placed outside, frying it for 25 minutes until fully cooked. 

 

enjoy the video above, and happy thanksgiving from designboom!
