Cleo Robotics Introduces The Newest Pocket Drone
” Camera drones are a wonderful thing. They get shots that we can’t get on our own. Whether it’s a familiar hike or someplace new, a camera drone can provide a new perspective. Unfortunately, these were not made for the average consumer. They can be big and expensive, and require flight practice with large controllers. Two engineers want to change that with the Cleo drone.
Developed by Omar Eleryan and Simon Czarnota, this little drone is small enough to fit in your pocket and was built for widespread use. “Drones need to be safer, smaller, and easier to use,” said Eleryan in a statement to Metro News. He and Czarnota achieved this by trimming the fat that the average consumer doesn’t care about. Think of it as the point and shoot of camera drones.
From the design alone, the Cleo drone is different from others on the market. Gone is the typical quadcopter design. In its place is a combination of helicopter and rocket technology. By stacking two blades, the Cleo retains stability while achieving a small form factor. With a smartphone acting as the controller, you get a drone that anyone could carry around.”
