Are you perhaps into drones or high-tech gadgets? If so, you might consider paying a visit to the CES event, hosted in Las Vegas Convention Center. CES 2016 features high-tech drones that come in all shapes and sizes.
Take a stroll down the aisles, open your mind and see what a little human know-how can do. With all the buzzing made by the drones, a potential customer might find himself a little bit confused if he was set on buying one.
This year’s CES event brings together famous drone-producing companies such as Yuneec, Micro Drone, and DJI.
So, if you are keen on buying yourself either a drone of any kind of gadget from CES, then bare in mind that this convention is the best opportunity to refresh your stock of high-tech gadgets. Basically, you can take everything you like, including the kitchen sink.
Now, back to drones and buzzing. The first drone showcased at this year’s CES is the Typhoon. Apart from bearing the name of a submarine class (which makes it sound real smooth and threatening at the same time), the Typhoon line of super drones is the wonder-child of Chinse-based drone manufactured Yuneec.
Shan Philips, the CEO of the American-arm of the company, said that Yuneec takes pride in manufacturing easy-to-use drones. According to his statements, the latest model in the Typhoon line, nicknames the H model, can be virtually flown right after you take out of its box.
The CEO also declared that the drone model is so easy to use, that even a 6-year-old can learn to pilot it in no time.
Next on the line, set to amaze us is Micro Drone, a British drone company. The company’s latest model, named Micro Drone 3.0 is allegedly the first fully customizable drone on the market. According to its makers, the drone can be piloted using a smartphone. Also, Micro Drone 3.0 is VR ready and can even shoot movies in high-definition.
Vernon Kerswell, the founder of the Micro Drone declared that the Micro Drone 3.0 project was entirely crowd-funded. During the February campaign hosted by Indiegogo, the company managed to collect over 3 million dollars for the project.
Kerswell also added that the drone will hit the market with a $200 price tag.
The last company showing off its vision on drones is DJI. According to several statements, it would seem that the drone showcased by DJI caught everyone’s attention, and apparently, for a good reason. Inspire 1, DJI’s latest design is outfitted with a thermal imaging sensor.
Michael Shaun, DJI’s Bussiness Development Manager stated that the new drone can be successfully employed by search-and-rescue teams to look for survivors.
