Staaker, is the first artificially intelligent auto-follow drone that actually works (according to the company). After three years of intensive testing and 50 prototypes later, this drone was built to make aerial filmmaking easy.
This is how it works. The drone flies itself and uses a tracker to follow and film you automatically. The tracker automatically tells the drone where you are and what you are doing and the artificial intelligence component estimates what you will be doing next to properly set-up the next shot.
What separates this auto-follow drone from the rest is the performance with max speed, flight time, and the ability to operate in extreme conditions. The company states the drone can fly up to 50 mph, 30 mins of flight time, a max distance of 1150 ft, and film from infinite angles with the five follow-modes. The product is built tough and is 100% waterproof. It’s also lightweight weighing in at 3.5 lbs. The Staaker is compatible with GoPro Hero 3, 3+, and 4 cameras that work with the 3-axis gimbal 3D.
Preorders for Staaker are available now $1195; pricing includes the drone, waterproof tracker and durable travel case. The product ships in December 2016 at $1795.
