Droneball Drone Laughs in the Face of Crashes

If you’ve ever flown a drone, you know how easy it can be to crash and destroy its blades or do other damage. The Droneball aims to do away with this problem, as it’s essentially a flying cage. Its over-the-top design let’s you fly your drone knowing that even if you crash, it is going to be alright.

It has protection on all sides and features 6-axis gyro stabilization, as well as a GPS and video-enabled radio control system for precise and accurate control. It’s also got a 1080p camera on board, but most importantly, it is a drone shaped like a ball. Unlike other drones with cages for protection, the Droneball is designed to just roll and bounce if it hits the ground, so you can take back off immediately. In fact, its makers say it can not only fly and drive, but drive up walls and ride across the ceiling.

It all sounds great, but I have one question: Why would you even build a Droneball without a Death Star skin? Somebody get on that please. C’mon people, do I have to think of everything?

Droneball is now raising funds for production over on Indiegogo. A pledge of at least $349 will get you one of your very own.
