Many of you guys have always been of the view that making preorders for devices from startups isn’t always a great idea, with many even vowing never to support crowd funding projects, and they are of the view that any project coming from a startup is on a 50/50 level, and yes, it really is.
If there is one company that got our hopes sky high, I think Lily robotics was that company and it caused ripples as a result of its follow-along camera drones. The idea was able to draw a funding of over $34 million in preorders, and interestingly, this was done without the help of crowdfunding companies like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo.
Of all the cool features of the drone, one that stood it aside was the fact that owners just need to throw the drone in the air, and off it goes. It’s designed to automatically hover whenever it’s thrown in the air, and that makes it pretty awesome.
Lily was also waterproof, so you can dip it in water and it wouldn’t even hurt. This may mean that users would have been able to take videos under water with this drone, and for the records, it’s touted as one of the strongest drones out there, and remembering that the fragility of most drones have been the main complaints users have, this idea proved to be pretty awesome.
