Aerial Skyros camera snaps pics while descending
The Skyros is a concept camera that launches into the sky and snaps pictures as it descends.
Here at CNET Asia, we've seen several aerial shooters. Here to join Craig Wilson's kite camera and the high-tech is the Skyros, a concept camera that launches into the sky and snaps pictures as it descends.
Designers Siddharth Kambe and Dipti Hanako Kambe engineered the camera to activate its rotors after being launched into the air. The shutter will then fire off at intervals to record different scenes during its descent. If the wind is too strong, the built-in sensor incorporated into the flight module will direct Skyros back to the user. On land, Skyros will work just like any other camera, according to the designers.
Skyros is only a concept product for now, so it's unlikely it will be available in stores anytime soon.
