If you like robotics and enjoy cutting-edge technology, you’re going to love the TechJect UAV Robot Dragonfly. These micro flyers began as a concept backed by a one million dollar grant from the US Air Force and spiraled into a fully customizable UVA for personal use developed at the Georgia Institute of Technology, as a joint effort between 20+ researchers, PhDs, professors and students from multiple universities across the world.
Listed as an Indiegogo project, the founders have raised well over their initial goal and are ready to bring this unique robot to the market. The Dragonfly can hover like a helicopter and fly like airplane, bringing the best of both RC worlds to you in a very customizable package that can be used for photography, home/workplace security, swarm robotics, advanced gaming and spying. To customize your dragonfly, you can choose from different wing styles, colors, electronics, pre-installed apps and other hardware.
The Dragonfly can be used for any task requiring live and mobile video feed; such as photography, home/workplace security, swarm robotics, advanced gaming and spying! And it does it with style with 5 technology patents delivering the extended performance improvement over other systems in the market. With up to 20 environmental sensors, cameras and GPS capabilities, it can be developed to track athletes & outdoor events, or integrated with an App as a fun way to retrace a day of skiing, hiking or whatever you like.
