Here’s a new drone that looks like it came straight out of a Transformers movie.
The LeveTop drone is a quadcopter that can disguise itself into an ordinary everyday object – just like the robots of Transformers. This particular piece of robotic machinery does not have any plans on taking the world however (as far as we know). Yes, for all the technology it possesses, its main defining characteristic is that it can transform itself into a thermos.
Not a fully functioning thermos, mind you. It’s more of a disguise and for easy portability. One minute you have a thermos in your backpack, the next you have a state-of-the-art drone with powerful cameras and flight capabilities. If you think about it, the drone would also belong in Spy movies like Mission: Impossible or James Bond.
Introducing the LeveTop:
The compact nature of this drone’s inactive form makes it perfect for road trips and getaways. For mountain hikers out there that do not want the burdens of carrying a drone with a heavy load, this drone is for you. Weighing less than a pound, it is more than ideal as a companion drone to a trip. While most see this as a convenience, it can also be as simple as aesthetics.
Another thing to consider with this thermos shape when the drone is inactive, is its toughness. Most drones have to be handled with care while on transport. Fragile parts may end up being the death of your drone in one simple second of mistake. The Thermos acts like armor, smoothening the drone’s exterior and hiding its internal devices. Meaning it can take a beating while in transport. You will never have to worry about transit damage ever again.
The LeveTop does not look like your typical recreational drone. Its body itself makes it look like a turtle more than an actual drone. It is a unique design – and an effective one to boot. No wonder people are turning heads to check this product out.
The camera is nothing spectacular to write about. It is on par with other camera drones out there. 1080p camera, video recording and photography; the works. The main selling point of the LeveTop is its thermos base and all the theatrics that come with it.
Its flight capabilities is respectable. You may think the body could somehow affect its flight, but you would be wrong. In actuality, the shape of the LeveTop actually helps create a more stable flight experience. The wings pop out of its cylindrical body, and it is good to go. Once you are done, you simply push the wings back inside, and poof, it is once again a thermos.
Where did it go?
It can fly for up to 20 minutes without landing, all while being capable of flying over 30 miles per hour. The LeveTop can be yours for just under $200 when it comes to stores in July this year.
