After wearable technology, it is the drone that are filling the headlines as well as the celestial body for past few months. As per the Internet definition, Drones are also called as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), which is basically a flying robot.
This can be controlled remotely through software-controlled flight plans in their embedded systems working in conjunction with GPS.
However, the personal drones are becoming increasingly popular for capturing videos, photos and other activities. Few years back, the e-retailer Amazon announced a plan to use drones for delivering the packages.
To our surprise, some of the amazing drone technologies and ideas had been showcased on the CES 2016 event. Let's have a look at some of the brilliant drone devices, which will rock this year.
This drone come in 5-foot tall, 500-pound in weight and fully electronic, which is large enough carry a human inside. Then how is it different from a jet or a helicopter for an instance? Instead of piloting, the user needs to enter their location in the smartphone app. But the sad part over here is the battery lasts for just 20 minutes.
DJI Phantom 3
It is one of the easiest drone to fly with the most flight time, features and great video quality. This drone supports 4K video recording, 20 minutes of flight time, Live HD Video streaming to your mobile device and Free In-app Flight simulator for learning to fly.
DJI Inspire 1
This drone comes with a 4K camera on a 360-degree panning gimbal, where you can control the motion of the camera independently.
Yuneec Q500 4K
Just like Phantom 3, this device shoots 4K video with an Android device built into the controller. So there is no need to use your tablet or smartphone.
This drone uses the GoPro Hero 4 for recording videos.Also, you can take off the camera, whenever you want to. It has a gimbal bay and an accessory bay, where the third-party companies can easily make new gimbals.
This drone comes with 6 LED lights which can be turned on and off from the controller. This drone is cheaper compared to the other drones.
Blade Nano QX
This drone has two flight modes stability and agility. In case of agility mode, the user will have full control to learn how to fly manually. While on the stability mode, it automatically levels itself when the user let it go.
Parrot Disco Drone
Dubbed as Massive Parrot Disco, this drone will fly longer than any other consumer drone in a single charge, which lasts for 45 minutes. All you have to do is to just throw the drone in the air and it will travel up to 80kph. This drone comes with 14MP triple axis digitally stabilized camera and can store up to 32GB of HD videos.
This drone is specifically designed for racing. In this drone the motors are tilted forward by about 10 degrees which improves the performance of the drone by decreasing drag and increasing speed in forward flight.
This drone from Autel has been showcased in CES 2016. This high-end drone comes with a 4K camera on a 3-axis gimbal to capture smoother video. Further, the user can sync the smartphone with the drone to watch the live 720p HD video.
Called as 'World safest drone', this device comes in spherical design, which has same height and size as Soccer ball. This drone can execute its task autonomously with its most powerful dual-core on-board computer. However, this drone can be programmed to perform autonomous flights and computer vision tasks.
