THE NETWORK

We looked at the potential of how live-stream travel could communicate.

A SHARED EXPERIENCE

We saw an opportunity for shared moments with family, friends, and groups.

POST UP.

Being able to pinpoint a location enhances our ability to observe an area without movement. We envisioned this to be a lens into another part of our world, allowing people to visit remote places.

Inspired by tripods, the cameras upright stance puts the users in a familiar perspective. It is as if they were "posted up", sitting right there. This allows for a more calming and stationary point-of-view.

STABLE FLIGHT.

Experience elevation, side to side movements, or hover in place. The quad-rotor mechanism combined with an internal electric ducted fan (EDF), allows for stable and versatile lift capabilities.

Combine these physical features with our artificial intelligent tour guide, you will be able to explore without feeling sick or out of control.

HERITAGE INSPIRED.

While playing with our prototypes... We found our design allowed the concept to turn into a traditional propeller airplane from the past.

The concept when combined with momentum, can be useful in both underwater and air scenarios to conserve energy. This mode allows for a more efficient linear path, rather than side to side movement.

BUILD & PLAY.

Building prototypes was the main source of how we iterated and refined our design.

All of our decisions were made by testing how electronic components, with the physical mechanics can influence the overall form.

We had a ton of fun here, and eventually led us to the final design.
