Crazy PowerVision PowerEgg Hatches into a 4K Camera Drone

It’s very difficult to say PowerEgg and not smile or giggle, and that’s sort of the point

Robotics company PowerVision was looking for a drone design that is friendly and approachable and not intimidating to anyone — and the result is the PowerEgg. When closed up, it looks like a giant shiny white egg, roughly the size of a rugby ball. Press a button to drop its legs, pull up each of its four propeller arms and it’s transformed into, well, a flying egg. A 4.6-pound (2 kg) one at that.

Under a cap on the bottom is the PowerEgg’s 4K-resolution camera on a three-axis motorized gimbal that, once flying, is completely unobstructed and can rotate 360 degrees. The quad’s visual positioning system is then also uncovered, to assist with indoor flying up to 13 feet (4 meters) above the ground.
