Skydio's $2499 'self-flying' drone knows where you are and where you're going
Skydio的2499美元“无人驾驶”无人驾驶飞机知道你在哪里,你要去哪里

A four-year-old autonomous drone startup founded by MIT researchers and backed by Silicon Valley's top investors is finally ready to show off what it's been building over the past several years.

Today, Skydio is showcasing the R1, a drone that boasts what the startup calls "self-flying" capabilities. What this means is that the drone is capable of locking-on to an individual and following them while shooting video and avoiding obstacles.

This doesn't just mean that it can avoid a tree or two while flying through an otherwise open field; the drone can track you while navigating itself through a dense forest or urban environments like a warehouse.

I had a chance to see these capabilities in action while running through Jefferson Square Park in San Francisco with the R1 hot on my tail. The drone is alarmingly impressive but there's something a little unsettling about having an autonomous drone track you down on its own while it avoids tree branches to keep you in its gaze.

My dystopian subconscious was more than likely fueled in part by binge-watching Netflix's Altered Carbon last weekend, but when I wasn't thinking about getting hunted by the R1, I was marveling at just how capable it was at navigating the world with its 13 onboard cameras as guides.

The process of diving into its self-flying capabilities is dead simple. After opening the app, you see the drone's point-of-view via its 4K 30fps camera, from there you can tap on yourself or another person (even while in a group) and the R1 will identify characteristics about that human shape, be it general appearance, color or size, and begin following.

The idea is that you could launch the drone, lock onto yourself, and ski down a mountain while the R1 tracked you to the bottom while capturing 4K footage.

It can travel at a maximum speed of 25 miles per hour while maintaining its autonomous bearings, and the battery life is 16 minutes on a charge. The drone has 64GB of onboard memory.
