Pocket Drone Carries GoPro to film you from the air

The GoPro camera has become quire ubiquitous over the years. You can find all sorts of footage online shot using the HD cameras and they have even been used in the production of TV shows. A cool drone has turned up that is designed to carry a GoPro camera called the Pocket Drone reports SingleTrackWorld.

The device is basically a flying mount for the GoPro camera and has three propellers. The Pocket Drone is controlled by an Android device using a USB connection. The flying camera can follow a predetermined Google Earth route.

The coolest feature of the camera though is that it is able to follow the GPS-enables Android phone or tablet. The Pocket Drone is also said to be upgradable in the future to support live video streaming to the portable device. That would allow you to control the drone and see where it is using the video.

Flight time with a GoPro attached is said to be 20 minutes. The kit is on Kickstarter now with a ready to fly unit needing only the GoPro and Android device selling for $495. That seems a bit costly to me.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
