Alpha Dragonfly Remote Drone

We hear a lot about drones and drone attacks, but these are huge and cost millions. Therefore, when we saw this Alpha Dragonfly drone kit, we just had to take a closer look at it. Apparently, when in flight it is hard to distinguish the drone from a real dragonfly. So once, in production there are all sorts of possibilities for these little guys, such as fitting them with mini cameras etc.

These are the details for the brilliant and slightly scary Alpha Dragonfly kit;

The TechJect Dragonfly is a wifi enabled, super-small, smart and energy efficient robotic insect; it can do amazing aerial photography, aerobatic manoeuvres for gaming, autonomous patrolling for security and surveillance, and much more. With up to 20 sensors onboard, the Dragonfly is the most advanced and compact flying platform out there.

 

You can get in on the ground floor by backing this project to the tune of $99 (£64) once the project goes to retail this entry level package will cost around $250 (£158).

Robot Calendar For 2013

This is a great looking calendar that has a sort of retro look and feel to it, but upon closer inspection it is clear to see that the designers Justin Mezzell and the 55 Hi’s have created this calendar with robots in mind. As such, each month is dedicated to a specific robot based on that month; it is fun and cool all at the same time.

These are some of the details for the cool and interesting robot calendar for 2013;

Each robot character in the calendar is illustrated and inspired by a common theme associated with the month it represents. For example, November is a Robot Turkey for Thanksgiving and also simply because a robot turkey is awesome. Holidays of each month are highlighted with circles and a full annual list is at the bottom for reference.

These cool robot themed 2013 calendars will cost you around £16 ($25).
