Project Skye - Autonomous blimp

Project Skye presents a novel concept combining the elegant and energy efficient flight of a blimp with the precise handling characteristics of a quadrocopter. Thanks to its symmetrical mechanical design, Skye can orient itself in any direction. With its integrated camera system, Skye resembles a hovering eye in the sky which enables applications in countless situations thanks to its long flight duration and high safety standards.
