Multifunctional Sticks / Drones

Multifunctional Sticks
Multifunctional Sticks

The trekking pole is a necessary tool for field explorers. Multifunctional Sticks is a design that combines the drone with the trekking pole. When exploring the wild, the expedition first releases the drone to explore the terrain and detect hazards in the surrounding environment, and find a suitable place to station. The built-in camera and sensor components of the drone can generate topographic maps where the camera is scanned. Expedition members can observe in real time through the mobile phone for better cooperation.
