Wednesday night was our big 3D Palooza party and we had a ton of companies at the Geek House showing off things that make it easier for people and companies to take advantage of 3D technology. One of the things we were doing was creating a full 3D map of the Geek House, inside and out. For the outside fly-around view of the building, 3D Robotics was here with their new Iris+ drone.
The Iris+ is a quadcopter that delivers 15-minute flight time while carrying a Go-Pro camera and gimbal. It’s guided from an Android tablet where you can just draw a flight path over a map of an area and the drone will follow that path.
With such an awesome drone right here, there’s no way I was going to miss learning to fly it. And I’m taking you guys along for the ride!
