Zero Zero Robotics plans to ship their second Hover drone in March. You’ve seen the first one; it folds open like a book, and hovers in space for selfies.

The new one is more like a full-featured drone. It can be controlled from more than 3 miles away. It takes 4k video and 12 megapixel photos. It uses AI to follow and track you while avoiding obstacles. And it starts at around $400.

Their Kickstarter campaign is already successful.

They’ve published sample footage from the drone.

One minor factoid of note: The Hover 2 handheld controller is called the “Palm Pilot.” Where have I heard that before?
