SKYROS / Aerial Camera

SKYROS is an aerial camera which takes unparalleled overhead photographs. It illuminates a unique bird’s eye view from where one can understand the intimate relationship with one’s environment in a refreshing new light. The camera is pneumatically launched up to 40 meters in the air where it stabilizes itself as the rotors start. As it flies back to the user it takes photographs at various intervals. The protective ring transforms into a tripod to launch it from the ground. It can also be used as a conventional camera when the rings wrap around it to communicate that it is safe.
