Further innovation from UK company Drones Direct, the Umbrella Drone lets you get the shot when the weather turns against you. Last year they famously bought a gold edition Phantom 4 to market. For the droner who has everything.
The British weather is predictably unpredictable – rain one minute, sunshine the next! It seems that every time you leave the house, you have to make that all important decision as to whether or not you should bring an umbrella. However, holding an umbrella, as well as your shopping and everything else can make it exceedingly difficult to use your smartphone or enjoy a quick coffee on the go. Thankfully, that’s all about to change with the invention of the umbrella drone.
At first glance, it may appear to resemble something from the likes of Mary Poppins, but on closer inspection, this specially adapted Phantom 4 drone is practically perfect in every way. As it hovers stable above you, the drone automatically tracks and follows your every movement via GPS in your smartphone to ensure the umbrella protects you from the rain without you needing to hold it. It essentially frees up your hands so you can concentrate on things like walking the dog, riding a bike, shooting photos or taking on those named storms in style.
