Snap Portable 4K Drone

Sep 4, 2015

Category: Tech

While drone technology has come a long way in 2015, it’s still not a reliable way to get the footage you want. They’re bulky and have to be carefully packed away so they don’t break, and flying a drone isn’t as easy as it looks, so crashing it into someone’s face is more common than we’d like it to be. Now, San Francisco-based Vantage Robotics has manufactured a solution: the Snap drone.

This 18-oz quadcopter fits into a small backpack and has guards around the rotors, so even if it does crash into someone, it won’t hurt. The drone is flown with the SmartTilt app, and has four camera modes: Follow Me, Air Tripod, Virtual Wire, and Free Follow. The battery lasts for roughly 20 minutes while recording 4K video. The blades fold inward so it can easily be stored away. It will be available for $895 in Spring 2016. [Purchase]
