3D Pocketcopter to capture amazing photos, videos from unusual perspectives


One way to capture awesome photos from different angles is to climb on furniture, walls and anything else you could find which could be dangerous and cause damage to things around you in the process. That’s what developers of the Pocketcopter understood, and they came up with an idea of designing the 3D Pocketcopter Flying Camera.

The Pocketcopter is a tiny flying camera with twin rotors, one on top of the other attached to the top of its cylindrical camera body. The flying camera is powered by a 12V rechargeable battery and is controlled via Android, Windows or iOS mobile devices over a WiFi connection or with Bluetooth connectivity. If the connection is lost for some reason, the 3D copter will float slowly to the ground. During flight the coptor’s twin blades spin in opposite directions thus achieving stability and ensuring quiet recordings. It can fly up to 10m in the air for up to 25 minutes on a single charge and its camera lasts for 6 hours in one charge.


Another compelling feature of the 3D Pocketcopter is that the 2 rotor fans can be detached and used as a standalone or a handheld camera. In such cases you’ll get up to 5 hours of shooting or recording on a single charge.

The camera is also capable of recording amazing videos in HD format from all possible perspectives. Pocketcopter software interfaces will allow the pictures or videos captured to be instantly shared on social networks like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. The camera comes in blue, black and yellow color variants.

The flying camera is expected to cost €99, but if who pledge 25 Euros or more on Indiegogo by April 2015, you can get it at a discounted price.
