Drones for filming or for delivering parcels are becoming more and more popular due to the increasing possibilities and falling prices. The future, however, will belong to completely different, more futuristic flying devices, which have little to do with current flying devices.
Meet MetaFly, the latest invention of Edwin van Ruymbee, the grandson of the man who built the first flying artificial bird called TIM. The robot impresses not only with its appearance, but also with incredible agility and possibilities. It's no secret that its designer was inspired by nature itself, namely insects and birds.
Therefore, in MetaFly you will not find rotors, as in a typical drone. It has been fitted with wings that move identically to our winged friends. Unlike them, it is much more flexible and durable, so it is not afraid of collisions with various objects.
The device can fly freely both indoors and outdoors. The drone is controlled by a dedicated controller at a distance of up to 100 meters. MetaFly can accelerate to 18 km / h, and after just 12 minutes of charging the battery, it can fly continuously for 8 minutes.
Most importantly, a futuristic drone is not a project, it ARTS AND CINEMA a ready-made device that really flies. If you are interested in him, read the details of his campaign on the popular Kickstarter. You can have MetaFly for only 79 euros, and if you buy more, the price will drop even more (see here).
