These days, drones are all the rage. Now, you can make your own with this handy Drone It Yourself kit from designer Jasper van Loenen. Droneifying (it's a word now) your belongings is a relatively straightforward procedure; all you need is a 3D printer and the ability to follow simple instructions. Once you've printed the control unit and four motorized propellers, you can clamp them to whatever object you wish to make airborne. Technically, your homemade flying device would be an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle, but Drone-It-Yourself has such a nice ring to it. To watch van Loenen's kit in action, check out the video after the break.
