I-Drone announces “Projector Drone” Concept
I-Drone today is proud to announce a projector drone concept, developed by the team in Melbourne & Brisbane, Australia.
World first: ‘Projector Drone’ shows sky no longer the limit for video projection.
It sounds futuristic but a flying projector drone is now very much a reality. This exciting world first is being developed by the team at Melbourne-based company, I-Drone.
The ‘Projector Drone’ is capable of beaming news, games and advertising over the walls of a city near you.
The proof of concept vehicle is able to fly for 12 minutes at a time, features its own on-board data storage and a 500 lumens projector. The company is already working on more sophisticated features, including live streaming data, pan and tilt projector controls and ultrasonic sound capabilities.
Ryan Hamlet, the company’s Project Manager, has said “We are dedicated to pushing the boundaries of what drones can do. We want to go beyond ‘eye-in the sky’ applications. Our ‘Projector Drone’ does not record the world around it. It broadcasts onto it.”
“The ‘Projector Drone’ is one of our favourite projects and has been developed in partnership with the team at Mini Projector.com.au”
Since early 2013 I-Drone has explored remotely piloted aircraft systems for a range of uses, from farming, photography, creative, emergency response, industrial applications and sports coaching.
I-Drone are now in the process of looking for commercial and educational partners to continue this project with them.
