Bionic Bird - The Furtive Drone
Bionic Bird isn’t just another flying machine. A bionic bird is a miniaturized replica of a living being. It’s controlled from a distance, even up in the clouds, in total harmony with nature. It weighs less than 10 grams (0.35 ounces), it’s the size of a swallow, and it can fly up to an altitude of 100m. The way it mimics flying and gliding is so convincing that even birds think its real. Drone technology is taking a huge step forward.
While drones and driverless cars dominate the headlines, another breakthrough—robot dexterity—is likely to have an even greater impact in both business and everyday life. Robot manipulation is the next shoe to drop, and humanoids are at the forefront! Imagine a robot that can do things with its hands in the real world—anything from defusing a bomb to doing your laundry. This has been a dream in the research community for decades, but now we're finally getting to the point where it could actually happen.
Gesture Controlled Drone
Gesture recognition technology helps you to communicate or control any other devices via your hand gestures. From this technology, you can control the drone simply by moving your hands. Now you can control your drone by doing the gesture where you don't need to have the transmitter in your hand for a flying drone. An accelerometer will be fixed over on the hand that will detect the movement of the body, then it sends the signal to the microcontroller. That signal will be sent to the drone with the help of telemetry.
Virtual Reality Expo
One of the most intriguing concepts of virtual reality is the ability to achieve a realistic simulation of worlds which are entirely the product of the imagination. Virtual reality was once the dream of science fiction. But the internet was also once a dream, and so were computers and smartphones. The future is coming to give us access to so much just out of reach physically, economically. If you can dream it, VR can make it!
Aerial Architectural Photography
Panoramas are one of the favourite ways to show off a scene. They contain so much interest and detail that they practically beg you to explore them. This little tip adds an extra pinch of creativity, turning standard panoramas into miniature planets that really have the "wow" factor. The technique is called stereographic projection. This fancy word really just means mapping out a sphere to a flat plane. The way we make tiny planets is by taking a flat image and mapping it to a sphere. Confused yet? Come and join the expo.
Controlling a drone and making it take off and perform stunts is absolutely exhilarating. Students can blend this fun with learning by programming their drones. This allows them to do much more advanced things with coding, and in the process learn the fundamentals of computer science. When you program, you’re not just reading instructions from a manual–you’re inventing you own play, and learning valuable debugging skills in the process. Drones are great for allowing people to play, explore, experiment, and learn. Drones inspire them to learn the fundamentals of code because they allow kids to visualize their code and use programming to solve real-world challenges.
Smart Drone Expo
In just the past few years, drones have transformed from a geeky hobbyist affair to a full-on cultural phenomenon and they’re available in just about any shape, size, or configuration you could ever want. The technology has permeated every aspect of life on earth and has become seamless enough to deceive us into believing virtuality as the new reality. So without further ado, here’s the exhibition of Smart Drone for you to experience drone flying!
