This week: The Pocket-Copter
While you couldn’t actually fit a pocket copter in your pocket it’s hard to imagine a whirly-bird smaller than this little guy. Pocket-copters are outfitted with a single prop, a movable viewing sensor, and a fin that doubles as landing gear. Typically these copters are sold as toys, but they have been known to be used for surveillance purposes. Though they can’t fly particularly high, they can fit in tight spaces, like through open windows and into your bedroom. They have the added benefit of being very cheap to build as they don’t often last very long, especially considering what happens to pocket-copters when they enter ones home uninvited.
