Drones are becoming increasingly popular and there’s literally hundreds to choose from on the market — from high-end drones priced in the thousands to low-end toy drones that cost twenty or thirty bucks. There’s probably a drone out there that would probably fit your skill level and needs but now there’s one more, the AirSelfie drone. This is a Kickstarter project that’s trying to make the idea of a drone that fits in a smartphone case a reality. The cool thing about this project is not only the small size of the drone but the fact it is controlled by a smartphone app.
- AirSelfie can fly up to 66 feet vertically, and features four powerful propellers, a 5-megapixel video camera.
- AirSelfie connects to smartphones via self-generated WiFi and comes equipped with a rechargeable battery, or an external power bank.
- AirSelfie is easy to use: to activate it, the user simply removes it from its case and turns it on.
- A vibration absorber system and altimeter guarantee stable, clear, flowing images.
- AirSelfie was created by the family that owns the Italian company Mondo, a major commercial flooring and toy manufacturer.
There are other small drones on the market but this one looks to be a bit more advanced and the Kickstarter price of $192USD which the company says is 50% off projected retail. I do have my doubts on how well this thing will perform in wind and if the video footage is worth the entry fee of $192USD. It looks interesting though and you can head over to their Kickstarter page to read more of their data and watch some other videos.
