A common problem with a variety of different drones on the market is that they have exposed blades and propellers that can put those around them in danger of being injured, but the 'Fleye' Flying Drone Robot is designed to make this a nonissue.

Instead of having open source propellers, the 'Fleye' Flying Drone Robot keeps everything away from the exterior to make it safe to interact with. Facial recognition software is built-in to the 'Fleye' Flying Drone Robot, which allows it to avoid people who might unexpectedly enter its flight path.

Able to be controlled via a smartphone, the 'Fleye' Flying Drone Robot features open source programming and has the ability to fly autonomously, if desired.
