Plenty of drones enable you to see what they see via a phone or tablet. But Flybi is the first to stream back the footage in virtual reality.
It comes with its own set of VR goggles. Slap them on, and you can watch the drone’s footage in ultra-immersive virtual reality. Even better, it detects when you move your head, thanks to the aerial on the virtual-reality goggles, and moves the camera accordingly. Turn your head to the left, and the camera will look left, for example. It’s the most intuitive way to have a look around.
The goggles work just like Google Cardboard, although they’re made of plastic, rather than cardboard.
The camera records in 1080p HD and can take 12-megapixel stills.
It’s raised over $32,000 of a $50,000 target and still has 38 days to go. It costs $495 (£331) on an early bird, and will ship in June next year.
