You can now fly a toy drone with just hand gestures

Toy drones continue to get smarter and more stable. Their controllers, on the other hand, remain a mess of sticks, buttons and switches that take a lot of practice to master.

The Aura drone from KD Interactive, on display this weekend at the New York Toy Fair 2017, fixes this by getting rid of the traditional controller altogether. In its place is a glove that lets you use hand gestures to pilot the quadcopter. Borrowed from military applications, the patented Gesturebotics technology powered by LocoRobo (a shortening of “low-cost robotics”) requires little more than tilting and rotating your hand to fly it.
