Fancy a flying tripod?

We’re all aware of drones. They float around and, based on my experience, seem to fly off into neighbours gardens so that I have to sheepishly ask for it back.

Here we have a new idea. It’s a smartphone case which houses a drone. Just snap it out of the case, set it flying and it’ll do everything else itself. The team behind this call it a flying tripod, as it’ll hover by itself to get the perfect shot.

This is a great intro just to explain it..

HD video is recorded onto the device and a lower quality view is sent to your phone so that you can adjust the flight path. Once done, it’ll fold down into a universal flip cover case or dedicated phone case.

If you want to be part of the action and back the project, head to Kickstarter, where they’ve actually already reached their goal.
