This drone is a type of Telexistence system whereby the user can experience the feeling of flight. Telexitence is a technology that enables users to synchronize their motions and emotions with robots, such that they can be at a place other than where he or she actually exists, while being able to interact with a faraway remote environment. In this case of the drone, a camera is attached to it and then whatever is captured by the camera is synchronized with the Head Mounted Display (HMD) of the user, such that the user is able to experience the flight of the drone. By integrating the flight unit with the user and thus crossing physical limitations such as height and physique, everyone can now enjoy a whole new concept of ‘space.’
