1 post in this topic

From PC World: Intel has made a name for itself in PCs and servers but is now dabbling in a new product category with its first-ever quadcopter now on sale.

The chipmaker's US$1,099 Aero Ready to Fly Drone comes fully assembled, with an integrated flight controller. It also comes with a remote control receiver and transmitter.

The drone has cool features like auto-pilot, with the ability to self-navigate by coordinating GPS and recognizing surroundings to avoid collisions. It has a 3D RealSense depth camera that can recognize objects and take rough measurements.

The Aero drone has a carbon fiber frame, electronic speed controllers, motors, and propellers. It has a range of sensors including an altimeter and magnetometer.

For all its cool features, it doesn't come with a battery pack. Intel recommends buying a specific type of high-capacity lithium-polymer, and details can be found on Intel's website.
