3-D Printing and Drones in M.I.A.’s “Double Bubble Trouble” Video

“What if you could make weapons like these in your own home using what’s called a ‘three-dimensional printer’? This sounds like science-fiction, but to some, it’s not so far-fetched.”

Thus begins M.I.A.’s new video for “Double Bubble Trouble”, and nothing that follows shares much in common with the sanitized, glossy smartphone commercial vision of technology’s role in our future, instead combining disenfranchised youths brandishing bright, 3-D printed guns, drone copters, and choreography into a dizzying, Tumblr/seapunk pastiche that’s certainly worth a watch.
