HOVER AMERA FOLLOWS YOU TO GET A SNAP
    2016-05-04  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    悬浮相机来袭自拍杆out了!

    Selfie-addicts know photos taken from above are among the most flattering, so why not have a drone constantly flying above you capturing your every move?

    Called the Hover Camera, the drone is designed to take perfect pictures thanks to image stabilization* technology and a built-in* 13MP camera. It’s designed to capture hi-resolution photo portraits and 4K video, and is controlled by a user’s smartphone via a Wi-Fi connection.

    San Francisco-based company Zero Zero Robotics, describes its creation as “the world’s first truly consumer-friendly self-flying camera.” The company said: “Hover Camera captures exciting moments, whether snapping an aerial family vacation photo, capturing the perfect shot from above the rim at a basketball game, or recording your wedding while you walk down the aisle.”

    The drone uses AI* algorithms* to intelligently navigate its environment and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Flight drone platform.

    Zero Zero Robotics says the Hover Camera is easier to fly. Users of Hover Camera can select an auto-follow mode or input a location they want the drone to fly too, possibly recording its path along the way. Stabilizer technology prevents fuzzy footage, while algorithms allow the drone to recognize faces and follow them.

    The drone can hover at a specific distance from the ground by using sonar* and a bottom-facing camera to hold it in place, like an invisible tripod. However, it is unable to dodge obstacles due to a lack of cameras on its sides.

    The machine can hover at a height of up to 50 meters and its altitude can be adjusted by swiping the phone screen used to control it. While a two-finger vertical swipe controls the altitude, the drone can be steered by swiping left and right.

    The drone can additionally be folded in two, meaning it can be easily stashed in a bag. Carbon-fiber casing protects users from being cut by its four blades, while its battery gives the gadget eight minutes of fly time.

    Weighing just 238g the company claims its light enough so it doesn’t have to be registered with the Federal Aviation Authorities.
