Drone and camera in the palm of your hand called Zano
Drones we’re seeing all kinds, usually of companies dedicated to this, others who come from other fields such as Parrot , and others as GoPro which can create a very interesting deal making them complement their cameras.
The example I will present is a small company that is looking for help to raise her little product. Such a tiny drone that can either do land and take off from our palm.
Its size is no excuse for forgetting an important complement, is that Zano incorporates a camera as standard. We are many possibilities to just the micro-drone work place, but its developers directly target the selfies from special places, too usies (group selfies).
The full dimensions fall into a bucket of 2.5×2.5 inches, weighing only 55 grams. The camera that have implemented is 5 megapixels, and is capable of recording video in 720p format. A limited number of transmission, since the camera can record smooth 1080p at 60 frames per second.
Zano development began in October 2013, and among the group of engineers working on it, no military experience in creating drones. Besides the size and the camera, there is another contribution, which has to do with dodging obstacles. Zano implemented a system based on GPS and infrared system that can prevent unwanted contacts.
The toddler even incorporate the “follow me” system that are including as many drones novelty of a higher price level. As for autonomy, tell us that the battery has a life of fifteen minutes. Zano can fly 30 meters from your mobile device at a maximum speed of 25 miles per hour.
He is currently a working prototype, but needs funding Kickstarter to become a real product in the summer of next year. For as the collection process progresses, there seems to have trouble meeting the required 125,000 pounds, and to create the first 500 drones. We are asking $ 220 for each Zano.
