DJI Spark Is The Smallest, Smart Drone
DJI take the wraps off its tiny Spark drone on Wednesday and is being touted as a personal drone designed to users that can literally take it anywhere to capture video and stills. Not only can it take off and land in the palm of your hand, but Spark has also been designed to interact with the user by using basic hand gestures.
The diminutive DJI Spark only weighs in at a modest 300 g (0.67 lb), measuring 14.3 cm (5.6 in) each side and 5.5 cm (2.1 in) tall. Like a lot of the other micro drones in the market, the idea is that you can take it with you on your adventures and get it into the air with minimal effort.
The drone launches from your hands and while it can be controlled by remote control or through DJI's mobile app, it can also be controlled entirely by hand gestures. This allows users to send Spark to fly up and away, take selfies and come back again simply by moving their hands. It can also hover at up to 30 m (98 (ft) and sense obstacles 16 ft away.
More so, Spark also comes with a new feature called Coordinate, that can send the drone flying to a certain location and on which users can just tap on their smartphone screen, along with a couple of new shooting modes and also the PanoMode, which automatically adjusts the gimbal and camera to capture a series of shots and stitch them into a panorama. The other mode is ShallowFocus, which makes a bokeh effect. It also features DJI's ActiveTrack tech that allows it to track objects on the screen.
The Spark will be available in blue green, white, red and yellow, and pis priced at $499. If you're looking to include the remote controller, that kit will cost $700, including an extra battery, bag, extra propellers, and guards. Available for pre-order now, DJI says it will start shipping the Spark in June.
