Hover Camera: Hovering pet like AI drone by Zero – Zero Robotics

Hover Camera Drone_1

Technology has been advancing every day in all the spheres of life, and we benefit from the new tech-developments which are coming in the market every day. One such amazing development is the Beijing’s Zero – Zero Robotics (self-flying) Hover Camera. The drone is invention of Wang Mengqiu, the SEO of Zero – Zero Robotics. It is more than a personalized drone which captures the pictures of users by hovering over and around them from different angles. The major catch in this artificial intelligent drone flying camera is that unlike the big and heavy drones available in the market, this passport sized 4K camera is very light weight, takes almost no space and takes beautiful 13 megapixel photos with 4K video recording capabilities. Another good feature of this camera drone is that it does not use stereo vision (which is used by nearly all the drones), rather it uses facial recognition and follows a specific user to take their pictures.

Disney Researchers develop one-legged hoping robot with built-in batteries

Untethered-One-Legged-Hopping-robot-disney research

We have confronted robots of varying sizes and shapes, and single-legged hopping robots are just one of them. Currently, the one-legged hoping robots are limited in their ability since they remain tethered to a power outlet. For the first time, Disney Researchers have broken the barrier and developed a battery-powered, untethered single-legged hoping robot. According to researchers, single legged robots can only move by hopping; therefore, this first-of-its-kind robot that does not require an external power source makes for a wonderful invention.
