GoPro Karma recalled over power loss issues

GoPro Karma recalled over power loss issues

It has barely been two months since GoPro launched its much-awaited and much-delayed first ever drone, but it seems that the Karma’s time in the spotlight will be short-lived. The company whose name has become synonymous with action cameras has just announced a recall of its GoPro Karma drones, all 2,500 or so of them, citing still undetermined issues that lead to power loss in the middle of operation. Considering the company’s coffers are already in the red, this recall has unsurprisingly made its market shares take a nosedive again.

Birdie lets you (safely) throw your GoPro through the air

The best way to get aerial footage with your GoPro action camera is a drone. The thing is, drones are expensive and take training to operate safely, and newly enacted regulations have caused some to shy away from them regardless.

STAAKER is an auto-follow drone with an ironic name

The STAAKER drone follows its user around so long as they wear its heavy-duty smart wristband. This wristband is made to withstand some large amounts of punishment, and the entire setup was made for hardcore x-games-type athletes to record themselves performing fabulous stunts. This drone is able to travel 50 MPH (80 KMH), so it'll relatively easily be able to keep up with even the fastest of enthusiast-level downhill snowboarders.
