They say good things come in small packages and in this case that is certainly true! The Zano utilizes incredibly smart algorithms that enable it to avoid obstacles so it's incredibly easy to control. The Zano has GPS on-board and uses infrared, air pressure sensors and echo sounding sonar to find its way around. This is not dissimilar to how bats use echo-location to prevent collision, by emitting high-frequency sounds that bounce off objects.
The Zano is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use, as it is able to stream footage either via wi-fi or 3/4G. It has a range of around 100 feet, flight time per charge of 15 minutes, and is capable of reaching a top speed of 25mph. The Zano will come with an iOS and Android app and the company is accepting pre-orders starting from £220 (£140). Beta testing will commence in March 2015, so expect delivery mid to late 2015.
