Meet the Zano drone

LAS VEGAS -- Drone makers are so plentiful at CES 2015, the show gave them their own space called the Unmanned Systems Marketplace. And that's where you'll find Lantronix and Torquing Group showcasing their aerial photography and HD video nano drone called Zano.

Fresh from its ridiculously successful Kickstarter campaign, the palm-sized quadcopter is controlled with your smartphone and can that can "avoid obstacles, hold its position and know exactly where it is in conjunction with your smart device."
