PowerVision Robot, which calls itself “the leader in the field of intelligent AI drones (artificial intelligence), virtual reality and augmented reality”, presented a new product called PowerEgg X Explorer and PowerEgg X Wizard at CES 2020.
These AI drones can be used as a standalone personal camera with AI, a handheld camera with a stabilizer and AI. According to the manufacturer, PowerVision Power Egg X opens a new category – “stand-alone personal cameras with artificial intelligence”
Allegedly, PowerEgg X with instant data exchange satisfies consumer demand for a versatile, more intelligent, easy-to-use, cost-effective camera, moreover, which can fly. A camera with a 1/2.8-inch format sensor and a 27mm EFR lens is capable of capturing 4K video at a frame rate of 60 fps. The waterproof camera housing has an IPX6 degree of protection.
In standalone camera mode, Power Egg X performs face recognition using the patented AI algorithm and robotics capabilities. The camera has a viewing angle of up to 170° and holds objects in the center of the frame, even if they are actively moving. You can control the camera by using gestures.
When you switch to manual mode, PowerEgg X stabilizes the image using a three-axis gimbal. According to the manufacturer, it is more effective than optical stabilization in ordinary photography. In this mode, the battery lasts for 3.5 hours.
Stabilization also works in drone mode. The drone is capable of flying in the wind up to 15-20 m/s. It comes with waterproof accessories (waterproof body and floats) that allow it – for the first time in the industry – to take off and land on water. The drone is not afraid of rain and can be used, for example, during rescue operations at sea.
An interesting feature of PowerVision PowerEgg X AI Drones is the availability of the SyncVoice function, which allows users to comment in real-time on the camera using the microphone of their mobile phone or headset. The sound is automatically synchronized with the image. The flight time in the unmanned aerial mode is 30 minutes. The drone automatically dodges obstacles, performs an exact landing and is endowed with other practical functions.
