Zano Zano – Drone cameras get smaller and smarter


Zano drones pack a lot of intelligence and mobility into the palm of your hand. This little guy has built-in obstacle avoidance and digital image stabilization – pretty high-end features for such a small affordable quad copter. The Zano is controlled using a smartphone app which features a simple control for altitude, image or video capture, and many other options. The app allows you to share photos and videos to social media while simultaneously operating the copter. Pretty crazy.

Zano’s virtual tether means you can set the quad copter to follow you at a specified altitude and distance. The hardware has been set up to allow new feature upgrades as they become available. The Zano comes in black or white and sells for £179.95 ($276.42) with £10 flat rate shipping to US. For more info, visit

    I want one!!!

    And I want to set it to follow me about 8 inches above my head. This way I get to look all the tall people I know in the face.

    Imagine if there were Zanos around in Ferguson, Staten Island, and all the other places where hand-held cell phone videos couldn’t get close enough, or high enough to see all the action.

    Yes, these drones look like many of the surveillance cameras Hollywood designs. And I can already hear the screams of “Invasion of Privacy.” But I like them.

      I want one too. I’m not sure what all I would do with one, but I think it would be really fun to play with.
