Worried About Your Phone? We Get That.
We know some of you are a little worried about sending your precious smartphone up into the air. That's why we've developed several safety features that will protect your phone in the event of the unexpected.
- Redundant Electronic Design: Borrowing techniques from full-sized aircraft design, we've built in redundancy into hardware and software design. This allows backup systems to take over if primary systems fail - and brings your smartphone home safely.
- Protective Universal Mount: We know (stuff) happens. That's why we cradled the phone in a protective neoprene sheath that provides vibration isolation as well as the ultimate shock protection. It can even hold waterproof smartphone cases for some piece of mind over water.
- Still not convinced? PhoneDrone Ethos is compatible with many low cost smartphones - some as low as $50. So pick up an extra smartphone and you'll still be flying the lowest cost cloud-connected autonomous drone on the planet.
Smartphones Just Got a Whole Lot More Powerful
Since their inception, smartphones have been confined to only two dimensions - limited to roam the earth at ground level. It's time to set your smartphone free! Grant your smartphone access to the third dimension with PhoneDrone Ethos! PhoneDrone Ethos is a remarkable device that gives your smartphone wings, allowing you to deploy your iPhone or Android phone as an autonomous aerial camera. Why is this revolutionary? We’ve leveraged the sensor, processor, and wireless capability of your smartphone. What you get is a powerful, cloud-connected aerial vehicle for a fraction of the cost of a typical drone.
Have an app that could leverage drone technology? We've got you covered. Our team will be releasing the PhoneDrone Controller API to the market, allowing developers to build drone capability into their existing apps, and even create completely new apps around this technology - imagine the innovation.
