Roboppi Flying Copter: the Real Hoverround

by Paul Strauss

This tiny remote-controlled flying machine from Japan is a combination helicopter, UFO and hovering light show.

A pair of soft, brightly colored rotors help to propel the Roboppi (ROBO-P) flyer upwards and produce stable flight.

As it flies through the air, colored LEDs inside the spinning body of the Roboppi blink rapidly, producing a whirlwind of color. Roboppi can fly around for up to 6 minutes at a time on a 25 minute charge.

Of course the pint-size flyer is no match for your cat…

Until recently, the Roboppi was only available in Japan, but thanks to the guys over at the Japan Trend Shop, you can get one flown in pretty much anywhere on the globe for $41 USD + shipping.

    Looks fun, but…any special purpose?
