More details on the product (patents pending, design registered) can be found below.

IMAGE ABOVE

This shows an early prototype with our fold away rotor design – these move into flight position when the drone is removed from the case. A bigger battery and smaller reel will be used in the final version.

DESIGN ETHOS

We were inspired to create the drone-in-a-phone case with a number of benefits:

 

OUR SOLUTION

To create a drone with the benefits listed above, we decided to go tethered and move all of the heavy items (batteries and some electronics) out of the drone and into a battery case. This allowed us to create an ultra lightweight, ultra small drone. Power would be supplied up the tether to the drone and image signals back down it into the phone case. A large battery in the case could both be used as a back up for your phone and give long flight times for the drone. The tether would stop the unit blowing away in the wind.

 

CURRENT STATUS

We have built a number of prototypes of with fold away motors/props, tested the live phone and video feed into the phone case, investigated methods of getting it into the phone and filed patents on a number of key innovations. We are still working to optimise the mechanical, electronic and software design before getting updated quotes for manufacture. We estimate that we will be ready to launch on Kickstarter in late Q3 2016.

 

WORK WITH US
