Smart device combines drone, HD camera and AI
The PowerEgg X, says the company, can be used as an autonomous personal AI camera, as a handheld three-axis AI camera, and also as a high-performance drone.
“Three years in development and over 100 technology patents later, the PowerEgg X is truly a one-of-a-kind device,” says Wally Zheng, Founder and CEO of PowerVision. “We designed this device with the content creator in mind. Packed with useful features, the PowerEgg X makes it easier for users to create the content that they already love making. Plus, through a companion app, users can easily create short videos to share on social media instantly.”
Equipped with a 4K/60fps HD camcorder with a three-axis gimbal, the PowerEgg X produces professional-quality video and 24-megapixel images. The device features a fully modular design, allowing users to quickly switch between the following modes: Autonomous Personal AI Camera, Handheld Gimbal Camera, or Smart Drone.
- Autonomous Personal AI Camera Mode – When in this mode and with an attached tripod, the device will utilize facial recognition, deep learning, and a tracking field of view up to 170° to keep subjects in the middle of the frame, even if they are running, dancing, or moving around. the device also features gesture control, allowing users to take a photo, record video, and track movements by merely making gestures that are based on a deep-learning massive gesture database.
- Handheld Gimbal Camera Mode – When switched into handheld mode, the PowerEgg X uses its three-axis mechanical-stability augmentation gimbal to guarantee smoother, more stable footage compared to optical image stabilization used in ordinary photography. The device has a battery life of 3.5 hours.
- Drone Mode – The drone features a flight time of 30 minutes, automatic obstacle avoidance, precise landing, intelligent flight modes, wind speed resistance up to 29-38 knots, 1080P image transmission within a distance of 3.7 miles, and more.
The PowerEgg X is also offered as the world’s first consumer drone that can pick up sound using a patented technology that automatically synchronizes sound picked up by the user’s phone with the drone’s footage. The device also comes with waterproof accessories (waterproof case and landing float) that enable it to take off from and land on water as well as fly in heavy rain. Its modular design allows it to be easily disassembled and packed away once finished flying.
The PowerEgg X is available now with an MSRP of $899 for the Explorer package and $1249 for the waterproof Wizard package.
