Are you looking for one last kickass Kickstarter project to get involved in before the holidays? If so, you should totally check out Pitta. A combination action cam and camera drone that resembles a high-tech version of the “golden snitch” from Harry Potter, Pitta boasts a nifty modular design that gives it several interesting uses. Whether you want to mount it on your bike like a GoPro or take to the skies, Pitta is a complete system packaged into a single device, with a modular snap-and-twist-to-lock design that lets you easily switch between modes.
PITTA offers a design that is easy and intuitive for everyone – even for hobbyists and first time users. It’s light, portable designs make it easy for PITTA to fit right into your lifestyle.
Weight and the size was the first thing we considered. Weighing under 200g (7oz) with 170mm (6.7in) of diagonal distance, PITTA is as light and portable as a smart phone that is easy to hold in one hand – which makes takeoff & landing easy even with just one hand.
With the 3-pole-hole that is compatible with standard action cam mount, you can capture your adventures in handheld or mounted in action Cam mode.
Portability is further enhanced with the foldable wings. Aside from saving you spaces, folding out wings when attached to the camera body will lock drone modules tightly to the camera module to prevent it from falling off.
Caps covering each motor protects PITTA from environmental hazards such as light rains and dust.
An ultrasonic sensor for ground detection and rubber padding on the housing prevent further water influx through the bottom of PITTA.
To help users with positioning and aligning the modules, magnets are embedded in each module. The camera is capable of tilting up and down, does no protrude and is entirely covered by the protector to prevent damage.
Power MonitorThe PITTA App monitors how much battery your phone has left – so that it doesn’t operate when the battery level on your phone is below the minimum required to securely fly PITTA.
Fully charged, the PITTA Selfie Drone operates for 15 minutes. When it is running out of battery, it will send an alarm or notification to your mobile phone to keep you updatedon the current status.
