Egg drone hatched

February 29, 2016  - By

Poweregg-open-WPowervision Robot Inc., a robotics and industrial drone maker, has launched drone shaped like an egg that can be folded up and stored in a backpack.

Although PowerEgg was developed for the mainstream consumer market, it includes advanced technologies such as a 360-degree panoramic 4K HD camera on a 3-axis gimbal, real-time long-range video transmission and advanced “optical flow” sensors for indoor navigation.

Poweregg-in-bag-WPowervision CEO Wally Zheng called the design a “work of art.” “We think the oval shape is not only clean and pure but also has the structural and functional benefits.”

The Powervision team spent more than 18 months to create the PowerEgg. The structural design includes larger propellers that required advancements to transform from the compact egg shape to the larger flight mode. On the software side, Powervision concentrated on making the drone easier to fly, because the average consumer drone has a 10-hour learning curve.

Since its inception in 2010, Powervision has focused on commercial UAV-related products and services including smart drones, data visualization and forecasting.

PowerEgg will be available early in the second quarter of this year.

    All this “egg-drone” needs now is a different paint job to help it hide, legs to stand on, and a way to aim the camera sideways and it can be a Land and Stare spy device. It would be great for nature study as well. Just think of all the off-limits portions of parks that could be explored with no physical impact on anything. Exploring delicate rock formations in complete safety, without even getting close to them. Spy on deer during hunting season. All kinds of uses.
