Pocked-Sized Camera Drones

'Cleo' is a Portable Drone That is Ready to Use Right Out of the Box

— July 13, 2017 — Tech
In an age where consumers are eager to document each and every experience on camera, drones have become a particularly useful tool. The only problem is that camera drones are often large, expensive, and difficult for the average person to operate. It is this increasingly common dilemma that engineers Omar Eleryan and Simon Czarnota aim to solve with a pocket-sized device called Cleo.

Cleo is a pint-sized camera drone that is made for the novice techie. For starters, Cleo is far smaller than the average quadcopter, making it the smallest drone in its class. In fact, the drone is so tiny that it can easily be stored in a pocket or purse until needed. This makes the drone ultra-portable and easy to stash away for unexpected photo ops.

In addition to its convenient size, Cleo is also a safer alternative to other drones on the market, due to the fact that its propellers are safely housed inside an interior duct. More specifically, two blades are stacked on top of one another on the inside of the device to save space, while still maintaining stability. This unique design means that the drone can be flown outdoors, indoors, or in crowded spaces, without fear that someone passing by may be injured by the device.

To top it all off, Eleryan and Czarnota designed Cleo so that it can be used straight out of the box. Instead of sifting through a lengthy instruction guide, users can simply connect to the intuitive smartphone application and begin piloting their device immediately. With just the tap of a button, users can instantly begin shooting 360-degree videos, panoramic portraits, bird's eye views or even hands-free selfies. This user-friendly technology makes it fast, easy, and seamless for people of all ages to capture their favorite moments from new heights.

For those who have been looking for a more accessible and affordable camera drone, Cleo delivers on all fronts.
