Another day, another flying camera for consumers

13 Apr 2017

Robotics company Zero Zero Robotics today announced that its flagship flying camera, the Hover Camera Passport, is now available exclusively on Apple.com and in Apple stores in five different countries.

Zero Zero works with the goal in mind of pioneering the future of consumer-friendly, smart robotics.

They are offering customers an AI-powered self-flying camera that allows anyone to operate it straight out of the box, and it is usable both indoors and outside.

"We're thrilled to bring autonomous flying photography into the hands of consumers who are excited by truly innovative technology that impact their everyday lives," says MQ Wang, CEO of Zero Zero Robotics.

"We want more customers to capture their memories in a near-effortless way through breathtaking perspectives that can only be achieved through Hover Camera Passport."

The Passport is now compatible with Apple video editing software including iMovie and Final Cut Pro X. This allows users to connect their camera to an Apple device to more easily download your photos and videos content for sharing and editing purposes.

The Passport also features a brand new user interface, which also carries over to the companion  Hover Camera mobile app. The interface update is designed to guide and educate consumers with no flying camera experience on getting started with the product immediately.

Available via the Hover Camera App, Passport can automatically create bite-sized, moving clips of your media by selecting and editing your best photos and videos to share with family and friends.

"These critical updates that make Hover Camera Passport even easier to use, will guide users to a truly out-of-the-box flying robot through Hover Camera Passport," says Wang.

"Our team has been working hard to continue to give consumers the most user-friendly experience with a flying camera."

The Hover Camera Passport is available through Apple in United States, Canada, China, Hong Kong, and the United Kingdom. The Hover Camera Passport Apple-exclusive bundle costs US$499.95 and includes a the flying camera, charging accessories and a carry bag.
