3D Pocketcopter - the flying camera

It's real and it's here. Now you can take photos of any event from a high enough level that you can include everyone. No need to stand on furniture or even get a ladder. It's small and works with your smart phone. It has battery status lights, so you always know how much "juice" it has.

The Pocketcopter itself is powered by a 12V battery (rechargeable or replaceable) and is controlled via the touch screen of your smartphone.

It can be used as a helmet camera or a hand held camera.
The connection is via WiFi (similar to the remote control of the GoPro) or Bluetooth.
Due to the fact that, although the rotor arms are fixed one above the other, each spins in the opposite direction to the other thus achieving stability
and ensuring quiet recordings.

Should the Pocketcopter lose the connection to the smartphone it automatically floats slowly to the ground.

The software interfaces will allow the pictures or videos taken to be instantly shared directly on social networks like Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.
