Press release - Jan 9, 2014
Today, Cooliris announces a partnership with Aibotix, the world's leading innovator in autonomous aerial vehicles, to bring a brand new consumer sharing experience for drone photography. While drone photography is in early stages of its evolution,the partnership creates a new era in the history of photography. Cooliris will be the first consumer photo application to integrate with drones, enabling consumers to gain a unique perspective in real-time and share the drone-captured photos and videos to private groups on their iPad and iPhone.
Using Aibotix’s next generation multicopter, which has a built-in camera mount, and Cooliris Groups, consumers will be able to capture otherwise inaccessible aerial angles of landscapes, such as the Grand Canyon, or close-up action shots of surfing, skiing and other immersive
activities, and share them with private groups of friends as the moment unfolds in real-time.
Consumers would also be able to use the Aibot X6 to easily capture photos at a party, an event or even a recreational activity, instead of being preoccupied with taking photos themselves and missing the action. With the private Cooliris group experience, the photos could be automatically shared into private groups so that those not in attendance would be able to gain a shared experience of the event and feel as if they were there.
