Zyro DroneBallRaised: $2,078
Shut Down: Never Got off the Ground
Who wants to play an aerial drone game? Not the folks on Kickstarter, apparently. Zyro DroneBall, a novel drone-game that involved modified badminton rackets and, um, drones - gained widespread publicity soon after the launch of its crowdfunding project.
It's not hard to see why. Zyro DroneBall looked like something that came out of Hogwarts with a James-Bond gadget twist. The game itself was to take place within a designated area, with up to 8 players controlling the drones by moving their modified rackets in the air, all without any physical contact with the drone.
Despite the good publicity, Zyro failed to meet it's fundraising goal of $50,000. For those with persistence, there is always light at the end of the tunnel, however.
According to the website, Zyro is "coming soon." Now, where have we heard that before?
