Let’s analyze the beautiful technology of Selfly camera drone phone case:
Mini drones have become quite popular in recent years, and Selfly is a very simple one. So the technological challenge wasn’t high. Since it uses existing technology, in order to enable a new kind of mini-drone use compacting it into a phone case was possible to implement.
This drone cum phone case is very slim & affordable. Its patent pending folding mechanism enables it to fold into a 9 mm thin phone case with chic design. It fits comfortably in your pocket so it can be with you at all times.
The dimension of this phone case is (131 x 66 x 9) mm. It works with Wi-Fi. The onboard camera is 8 MP. It can snap photo 1080p at 30 fps. Its weight is only 70 gm.
HOW IS IT WORKS?
The heart of this system is the software & it’s communication with the smartphone. It has an optional control mode. In all modes; the default action is stable hovering, just like an invisible tripod.
There is basic control systems FLY BY STICK. Here you can use control sticks or the phones gravity sensor in the ‘traditional good old way’. The full development and source code for the SELFLY’s user application will be released. You can modify the control by using any of the phone’s abilities to add amazing control options.
In ‘photo-based initiative control’- you can manipulate the picture on the screen & the selfie drone will perform accordingly. It’s a simple initiative and fun.
HD video is recorded to RAM on the drone and is stored as raw data. Lower quality 1st pilot view is sent to the app for controlling this selfie drone by the user. Once you’re satisfied with the settings, you can take a high-resolution photo which is immediately transferred to the phone. The high-quality data sent depends on the bandwidth availability.
This selfie drone can operate for 5 minutes at the air – enough to take many selfies, about 15-20 selfie flight maneuvers before its battery capacity falls under 15%. With the power bank, you can recharge more than 10 times.
