Now You Can Add a Drone-powered Hammock to Your Bucket List

Just an atypical day in Khashuri, Georgia (the japanese European one). The solar is shining, music is taking part in and a man is hovering above the town in a flying hammock.

The hammock seems to be suspended by a drone. Which is, clearly, fully ridiculous. Although we’re nonetheless unsure whether or not the footage is actual or not. But even is that is simply an optical phantasm, it undoubtedly opens up an fascinating avenue to be used circumstances additional down the road. Forget private transport drones – what about having a private drone-powered hammock?

The probably rationalization is that it isn’t a man in any respect, however a model. But generally accepting actuality isn’t as enjoyable.

See what you assume within the video beneath:

We noticed over the Christmas interval precisely how highly effective (and huge) a drone would wish to be to deal with the burden of a grown man. In a Samsung-sponsored stunt, Youtuber Casey Neistat took a custom-built drone to the slopes and used it as his personal private ski elevate.

That footage was fairly spectacular, as you’ll be able to see within the clip beneath. But that machine was a monster, an octocopter. The video from Georgia exhibits a drone with solely 6 props, and although that doesn’t essentially imply it doesn’t have the facility, we’re going to exit on a limb and say that it doesn’t have the facility.

Still, it’s an fascinating thought. The extra we start to belief drones and autonomous flight security, the extra we’ll begin to see purposes that contain private transit and full body weight help. It’s in all probability a good thought to begin small for now, although. Something that doesn’t contain risking your life. Like this instance, from Freefly Systems, during which a man wakeboards whereas being dragged alongside by a UAV.

It’s in all probability finest that you simply don’t strive any of the above at dwelling.
