Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look at the cool world of transforming drones.
No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.
Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones that have the ability to maneuver into small and unique positions.
Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Drone legal and safety
This video by Drone U showcases a drone dubbed ‘The Dragon Drone” created by students of the University of Tokyo maneuvering mid-air to fit into all sorts of places. As the video carries on you can see the drone changing and morphing into new shapes to make its way a through a small opening.
This video by RaizzieN shows a drone with robotic arms and legs making the drone flyable and walk-able. This makes the drone great as it can change its footprint while in the air as well as being able to fly into danger zones and then crawling along the ground.
Good idea / bad idea wrap up
As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.
If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
