When you want to take your DJI Mavic 2 to the skies, you don’t need a mobile device anymore. DJI has launched Smart Controller with an ultra-bright screen, aimed to provide you with more convenient and efficient flying experience, although at a pretty high price.
We’ve seen tech that lets you control a drone with body movement and with facial expressions. And now, the engineers at New York University, the University of Pennsylvania, and the U.S. Army Research Laboratory have teamed up to create a new tech that lets you control a drone with your eye movement. With a pair of eye-tracking glasses, you can tell your drone where to fly simply by moving your eyes.
There are a few ways of controlling a drone, including head movements, hand gestures, even facial expressions. But have you ever thought of flying a drone while you pretend to be flying on the ground? There is now a suit that enables it, developed by École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), a university in Switzerland. Now you can spread your wings… I mean, arms, and fly like an eagle!
There’s been a lot of talk lately about using… “non standard” input devices for using software. DIY Projects such as MIDI2Lightroom, and the Playstation Lightroom Cullinator have led to more purpose built units being built. Products like Palette, a customisable interface of knobs, dials and sliders, and Loupedeck, an all-in-one unit.
For Lightroom, that’s great, but when it comes to video, the options are a little more sparse. Sure, there’s input devices available for DaVinci Resolve, but what about Adobe Premiere Pro? Well, here’s the folks at Owl Bot with a free solution to let you use your Steam Controller with the latest update of Premiere Pro CC2017.
