Fotokite Phi Is A $349 Drone On A Leash That Needs No Pilot, Just A GoPro
Jared Sperli stashed this in drones
I'm sure it's just a matter of time before people start shooting at these things:
The Fotokite Phi could unlock citizen drone journalism in crowded areas like protests where it’d be too dangerous or distracting to fly a free-roaming drone. Its low-torque soft plastic blades with guards reduce the chance of injury if it does hit someone, winning permission for Fotokites to be flown near crowds in Switzerland and France. Plus, the whole drone folds into a foot-long tube that can easily be carried in a backpack.
