German brothers Johannes and Phillip Mickenbecker made a drone from a bathtub. It’s remote-controlled and uses the same technology as common drones.
The brothers flew it around in a gym with a pilot inside.
They needed permission from the German government to build it. The bathtub has to be flown at a height lower than 30 metres, which is why the project was approved.
The brothers are also known as The Real Life Guys on social media. They started working on the flying bathtub in the summer of 2017.
It took 2 months to source the right propellers, which were necessary to make it fly stably. Other companies helped the brothers by sponsoring the project. So far the bathtub has been flown indoors only. The brothers hope to take it outside in the future.
