China-headquartered ZEROTECH has unveiled the DOBBY, a foldable, pocket-sized drone designed for taking selfies.
ZEROTECH says the drone, the company’s first product to be launched internationally, will be available later this month in the U.S. and Canada, as well as across Europe.
Featuring motion-guided control connected to the user’s cell phone, DOBBY includes a 13-megapixel camera with a field of view of 75 degrees and 1080p FHD video capabilities. When folded, its dimensions are 135 mm x 67 mm x 36.8 mm.
The drone is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon flight platform, a platform targeted specifically for consumer drones and robotics applications. Snapdragon Flight is based on the Snapdragon 801 processor, which includes GPS, 4K capture and robust connectivity, as well as advanced drone software and development tools.
With its patented design, DOBBY weighs only 199 grams and can fold up to fit into the consumer’s pocket, explains ZEROTECH. The aircraft also includes three-axis electronic image stabilization system, gesture control and target tracking.
Additionally, DOBBY offers nine minutes of flight time and supports both Qualcomm Quick Charge technology and portable chargers.
The standard and advanced versions cost $399 and $469, respectively. In the U.S., the drone will be available at B&H Photo Video.
