GoPro is taking the leap from wearable video cameras to gadgets that take to the skies.
The company, well-known for an extensive range of wearable video cameras, is making an understandable step towards the realm of drone development. According to sources of the Wall Street Journal, the San Mateo, California-based firm will start selling multi-rotor helicopters equipped with high-definition cameras late next year.
The anticipated price-tag of these consumer unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) will be between $500 and $1,000. This will place GoPro’s creations in direct competition with other products such as SZ DJI Technology’s Phantom and 3D Robotics’s Iris+ personal drone.
