Mighty morphin power drone

Mighty morphin’ power drone. This might be the craziest drone ever developed. The transforming drone is a prototype from the University of Zurich. It’s designed to fold in order to navigate through narrow and unique passageways. The foldable drone doesn’t use GPS, 3Dmapping or radio-beacons. Instead, it uses 2 cameras and onboard computer and sensors. The drone’s frame has 4 independent arms that fold around the main unite. It’s operated autonomously or by a wireless controller. The drone can morph into 3 different shapes. H Morphology narrows the body of the drone for small passageways. O Morphology folds the propellers close to the body for vertical entrance. T Morphology allows the drone to get closer to surfaces and surroundings. No word yet if the drone will go into production. The Foldable Drone is a prototype developed by the University of Zurich in the attempt to create an adaptable drone that doesn’t use GPS, 3D mapping, or radio-beacons to navigate. The drone can morph into three shapes to navigate through narrow and unique passageways. Learn more at Uzh.ch
