The Oregami Pocket Drone… It Conveniently Folds Up and Fits in Your Pocket… How cool is that?
For all those who are tired of dealing with those pesky cumbersome drones: finally, here is one that can fold up and fit in your pocket.
The little, origami-inspired quadcopters can unfold and deploy themselves in half a second, Live Science reports.
Dario Floreano, who led the research on the drone, told Live Science, You can take it out of the box, switch on the motor, and its ready to fly.
Researchers say they could be used to take photographs and make contact with survivors in disaster zones.
Future models of these drones will be lighter with stronger arms that could withstand crashes, according to Mashable. The current prototype has been patented and will debut May 25 at a robotics conference in Seattle.
This is only the beginning in terms of drone technology. The evolution we will see in the years ahead is going to be quite fascinating. We are no longer in the realm of science fiction but science facts. See and read more about this type of technology in www.newdawnreboot.com/spotlight.
