Staaker drone follows you from aboveThis self-flying drone uses an artificial intelligence system to predict your every move so it can capture the best shot.
A lot of drones on the market have tracking or follow me mode but this drone is different. It's called the Staaker and it is all controlled by this one tracking unit here that you can wear on your body. Now the tracker has an artificial intelligence engine built inside. It can actually predict What you're gonna do next so it can get the best shot possible. Inside the checker is the GPS, accelerometer, barometer and compass. It gives it all of the data about your movements in order to predict what you're gonna do. Plus historical data about your movements too in order to get the best possible shot. Now, the drone itself is also relatively compact, the arms and legs can fold in, so it's very portable. It uses a Go-Pro which is an optional extra obviously that you have to provide if you want to film the action. There is a three axis gamble. The battery and flight time lasts around 30 minutes or so on a single charge. Plus the maximum speed you can get up to is 15 miles per hour which is pretty fast for a drone of this type. Now there is no phone control app that you actually control the [UNKNOWN] through. It's all through this particular tracker that you wear on your body. So if you're running around in a field, ideally you're supposed to be using this for a really difficult to track subject, such as if you're mountain biking, skiing in the Alps or the mountains. Obviously me running back and forth. That's a pretty easy test. So, we thought why don't we get it to see what it looks like when something, not as flexible as me as running around, a dog. So, we decided to strap it to Rocky, our four legged friend, and see what it could do [MUSIC] The final price is $1,799 with availability in December. [MUSIC]
