The german author, philosopher and entomologist Ernst Jünger wrote in his book The Glass Bees (1957) about tiny flying robot insects. He didn´t like the idea of a technocratic future. It is here now. And it won´t go away anymore. So what ever you might think about surveillance and the sick dream of omnipotence it fueled, you will probably want to own this gadget if you are in any way a creative human being. Or a stalker. Or a paranoid. Or a tyrant in the making. And a smartphone user.
The 3D Pocketcopter is a drone that gives your handheld (iOS, Android and Windows Phone) a 3D/HD eye in the sky.For a stunning 6+ hours, no other commercial drone will give you that battery life at the moment, you can expand your vision to a 10 square meter cube and see what´s happening. Or what´s coming. The 3D Pocketcopter packs the flying gear, a camera, a microSD-Card, Wifi and Bluetooth and a rechargable 12V battery in the incredible measures of only 19 x 4,5 cm.
Looks like a sure shot! You can pre-order yours for 89 Euros and have your eye in the sky by May 2015. It´s more than 30 years ago since Alan Parson´s Project sang about the Eye in the Sky. You can have it now. But if you are a stalker, paranoid or future tyrant you better let that one pass. Remember: I am the eye in the sky, looking at you
I can read your mind
I am the maker of rules, dealing with fools
I can cheat you blind
