My Dad is a tech junky. I mean after all what he is a computer programmer at his work and computers and code and all things tech are his life so needless to say I normally shop for him or get him a gift certificate to Best Buy so that he can buy all the latest gadgets that he so desires. Now we have talked about drones before and I have seen lots of people post their videos taken from their drones online and I am just in awe at what they can do and the fun you truly can have with them. Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new Solo™ by 3DR which arrived in stores on June 8th. Now is the time to explore and if you forgot a Father’s Day gift then this could be just the thing that will make up for your lateness or get your dad a gift certificate like me so that he can go buy his own!!
· Solo, the Smart Drone, arrived in over 400 Best Buy stores on June 8, just in time for Father’s Day. It’s the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone. The Solo retails for $999.
· Solo can define its own flight, freeing users to focus on getting the shot. This intelligent drone is also the first to support full control of GoPro® cameras and deliver live HD video either wirelessly to your mobile device or through the controller’s HDMI port for live broadcasts
Solo runs two 1GHz computers — one on the drone itself and one in the controller — connected via a powerful dedicated Wi-Fi signal. This enables Solo to do amazing things, like use the one-of-a-kind computer-assisted Smart Shot modes to fly itself so you can focus on shooting images. Solo is also an all-in-one drone that offers live streaming of HD video from your GoPro directly to your mobile device.
Now tell me that isn’t a toy that every techy dad or really anyone would want to discover and play with all the time. It can be used for so much more than just play and just imagine the shots it could get that we could never reach on our own! Wow, just wow.
