DJI Goggles unveiled, lets you control a drone with head movement
DJI has finally unveiled its latest drone innovation. If you find hand controllers to be tedious for controlling a quadcopter, then this new tech will please you.
Introducing the DJI Goggles. It lets you control your drone’s gimbal by simply moving your head. You can also take control of the drone’s camera as it follows your head movement too but you won’t have full control of the drone’s path. Pairing it with the hand controller makes it a portable roller coaster ride.
The headpiece itself looks like a PlayStation VR but there’s more to it including a 1920×1080 resolution per eye, touchpad, headphone jack, microSD card slot, microUSB, HDMI (to be used with other compatible devices), and a six-hour battery life. There are two viewing mode: one in 720p @ 60fps and another in 1080p @ 30fps. Both have a latency of 110ms.
It’s up for pre-order for $449 with shipping in late May. It’s compatible with the Mavic Pro, Phantom 4, and Inspire series drones.
