Scotus is an interactive open surveillance experiment. Scotus wants to give you the power to survey the surveillance, to monitor the monitors, to police the police. The Supreme Court has determined the use of unmanned aerial vehicles for law enforcement purposes to be constitutional. Scotus believes it is only fair that everyone—police included—be subject to the same tools of scrutiny. Scotus has the potential to be a useful tool for activists practicing their first amendment rights as well as those who engage in civil disobedience.

Scotus the AR Drone was born out of my 2013 MFA Thesis as a product of research into the effects of the growing availability of visual documentation on the public's perception of the legitimacy of official public record.
