The Hover Camera calls itself “the world’s first truly consumer-friendly self-flying camera that’s safe, portable, and easy-to-use.” Today, the company launched exclusive sales of its camera at Apple Stores and Apple online, in Canada, the U.S., the UK, Hong Kong and Mainland China.
For Canadians considering the Hover Camera, it’ll cost you $679.95. The flying camera with its carbon-fibre body records video in 4K and can take 13MP pictures, and comes with built-in 32GB memory. The highlight of the device is its foldable design, which makes it portable “just like a notebook” says Hover, as it automatically finds and follows the camera owner.
To download 4K video to your Mac, users will require a separate micro-B to USB 3.0 cable, sold separately.
Hover Camera shared its drone with influencers such as Casey Neistat five months ago:
Hover is controlled with its companion iOS app, which shows real-time video. There are different preset modes where the Hover can record a 360 degree video, or body tracking to follow the owner whether they’re running or walking.
