PowerVision claims the 'egg' is the first to come with one-handed gesture controls

If flying regular drones proves tricky, help is at hand – literally – thanks to this gesture-controlled quadcopter that’s shaped like an egg.

The sleek PowerEgg, from PowerVision, is claimed to be easy to scramble because take-off and landing can be achieved at the push of a button.

The company behind it says anyone can fly the drone without having to get to grips with a multitude of complicated commands, and can even do so with one hand.

 

The PowerEgg resembles a sleek shiny egg, from which four arms with rotors attached extend. It has been developed by robotics firm PowerVision Technology Group and is claimed to be the industry’s first gesture recognition remote control that can be used with one hand.
