AeriCam Anura Pocket-Sized Drone
Drones have begun their takeover on the tech scene in recent years. But even with all the options we have, there’s nothing that offers real portability – until now. Meet the AeriCam Anura pocket-sized drone.
After designing drones for the film and the photography industry for the past seven years, the San Francisco-based company AeriCam took two years to create a Swiss Army knife inspired drone. Piloted by nothing more than a Wi-Fi enabled smartphone (both iOS and Android compatible), this quadcopter has been outfitted with a micro camera to stream action directly to your mobile device. It features a range of up to 80 feet, a flight time of 10 minutes on a single charge, and can reach speeds exceeding 25 mph once airborne. When you’re done taking it for a spin, simply tuck the rotors neatly inside the body, slip it into your pocket and off you go. When the rotors are folded, the Anura measures in at around the same size as your standard 4.7-inch iPhone 6. AeriCam easily surpassed its goal on Kickstarter, and plans on hitting the retail scene with a sticker price under $200. Watch the video below. [Purchase]
