CyPhy Works LVL 1 DroneGoal: $250,000
Time Remaining 33 days
The idea behind the LVL 1 Drone is to simplify the drone flying experience. Current consumer drone models tilt to the side or forward when changing directions during flight. A combination of software and hardware ensures the LVL 1 “doesn’t tilt forward or backward as it flies, which is what can make flying really difficult for novices.”
The LVL 1 also has six rotors - two more than most models - that are all slightly angled to also help it maneuver without tilting forward or sideways.
A 1080p camera is integrated into the LVL 1 body rather than being attached to a hanging bracket to improve stability.
