Kickstarter has another hit on its hands, actually one that could fit in the palm of your hand, introducing the Zano nano drone by English engineering and design company Torquing Group LTD. While its dimension may be diminutive it is one smart muchacho that’s capable of intelligent flight, autonomous or swarm behavior and all controlled via your smartphone. Video and audio capture are via the 5 megapixel digitally stabilized camera and all of this is contained within the incredible 55 gram take off weight.
Launched on Kickstarter in November the Torquing Group have already busted through their goal of £125,000, reaching the lofty heights of £551,372 with 33 days still to go. If they reach the 750k mark autonomous tracking may even be possible. All going well early adopters should see their nano drone arrive in the mail July 2015, delivery by drone Amazon style would just be too perfect.
Presented for your viewing pleasure is the incredible Android or iOS controlled nano drone. Here at Highpants we think it would be a form of abuse to use such an amazing gadget for group selfies but we also know it is inevitable. Sit back, relax and enjoy the demonstration videos of one cool flying gadget.
