Our sister The Bionic Eye will be showcasing the radically designed PowerEgg, the drone that combines the revolutionary 4K camera with an elegant, portable, and durable egg-shaped design.
Both its landing gear and propeller struts retract back into the housing for easy transportation but flick out for flight. The bottom tip of the Egg pops off to reveal a 4K UHD camera mounted on a stabilized 360 degree gimbal.
The Power Egg is capable of flying both indoors and out. When outside, the UAV's on-board GPS keeps track of where it is relative to the operator. When flying inside, the Power Egg switches over to sonar and ground pattern recognition to understand its orientation.
Users can control the UAV with either a standard two-axis controller or with a dedicated gesture remote. This secondary controller is designed specifically for people who are new to flying and may be hesitant to give it a go. Wave the remote up to have the Power Egg climb or sweep to the left and right to have it pan. And if that's too much for your tech-phobic relatives to handle, the wand remote also includes an analogue thumbstick. Both remotes offer single-button landing and both rely on your iOS and Android mobile device for processing power.
The Power Egg is also able to think for itself, to a degree, and offers a number of autonomous features. You can command it to travel between pre-selected waypoints while you control the camera, have it circle a specific location -- you can even have it perpetually train its camera on the operator in Selfie Mode.
Come and see the PowerEgg at Commercial UAV Show at London’s ExCel next week,we are stand (41), where you will also have the opportunity to win one!
