If you fancy owning and flying a pocket drone the new Anura might be worth more investigation, as its aims to raise $100,000 over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website to make the jump from concept to production.
The Anura Pocket Drone weighs just 4 ounces and is capable of flying for 12-16 minutes on a full charge and is equipped with a 320 x 288 dpi camera. Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the Anura and see it in action.
“Drones are on top of everyone’s love-to-get gadget list, but they’re expensive, complicated, and a hassle to carry around.
Then there are mini quadcopters—a better option for beginners since they’re less expensive and better able to survive multiple crashes (so you can learn to fly your machine before trashing it). But minis lack that all-important flight camera—so they quickly become boring and usually end up as static living room decorations, along with your high school soccer trophies and college diploma.
So maybe you want to add a micro camera and a few previewing solutions to jazz up the experience? Unfortunately, you’re looking at hundreds more dollars in cost, not to mention all the extra gear you have to lug around.
Anura is the perfect solution for this problem. A Micro Drone slightly larger than an iPhone, it travels conveniently with the user wherever, whenever, 24/7. Best of all, it requires only smart phone (IOS/ANDROID) to control and preview images. “
