Wearable, handheld, and aerial cameras are not a novelty anymore. However, a device that is all these in one is quite an interesting gadget. Pitta is now the object of a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. This modular transformative drone can take your picture in several ways, making it perfect for every scenario. Whether users want to simply snap a selfie or take an aerial photo, they can do both with the help of PITTA. The funding campaign will remain live for the next 16 days, however, it already raised more than 800% of its desired funding. It’s safe to say that this will definitely become reality soon. In a few months, we might see this globe-shaped drone fly over our heads everywhere.
The design of the PITTA modular transformative drone is quite a simple one. The globe is quite small, making it ultra portable. Also, it is extremely easy to use. The device is actually made up of three modules. Those who buy it will receive the camera body, the propellers, and a charging dock. Depending on the situation, the device can be used as a drone or an action camera. The action cam module is compatible with the majority of standard mounts. All users need to do is fix the action cam module on the mount and hit the record button. The PITTA modular transformational drone can even work as a safety cam. Users just need to install it in their homes.
While the PITTA is extremely useful as an action camera, it is more impressive when it is in the air. The PITTA isn’t only a small, cute drone. It has a lot of features that ensure a great user experience. The device features GPS, it is aware of its surroundings, so it won’t hit the ground, it is able to hover, to orbit, and it can land by itself. Also, the PITTA will be able to follow you around and come back home. Naturally, it can capture 360 panoramic photos with its 13MP camera. The device is easy to control via the mobile app so users don’t need to be drone specialists to fly it.
The PITTA modular transformative drone is quite intelligent too. It will not operate whenever the user’s smartphone doesn’t have enough battery life to fly it safely. Also, when the drone itself is running out of battery, it will send an alarm or notification to the user’s smartphone. This way, accidents can be easily prevented from happening. The PITTA drone will reportedly start shipping in May. Those who back the project with at least $289 can be among the first ones to get it. Those who pledge more for the cause can get extra accessories too, such as propeller guards, extra battery, and 64GB storage.
There still is time to back the project. The crowdfunding campaign will end in more than two weeks from now. Until then, those who wish to get one of the cute PITTA drones can easily do it.
