Another week another folding wearable controlled quad copter. Out today, $100 discount for a few lucky buyers if you get in early. http://staaker.com/
We had the idea to make a drone that follows and films you completely automatically while shredding the gnarliest mountain lines where you just can’t fly a traditional drone. We thought “how hard can it be!?” and started work right away….
50 prototypes and 3 years later it turns out it was pretty hard. The team quickly grew and OJ (CEO) hired people that are way smarter than him. They built a predictive tracking system that works much like a human camera man and a drone that is fast, stable, robust, water resistant and has a long flight time. The tracker was also designed and built so that it can take a beating whilst being completely waterproof.
We have discussed folding follow me’s before… I am amazed that several big outfits are punting this one like its something new with special powers.
