Gadget of the Week – Aerix VIDIUS HD
Published on February 23, 2017
Live streaming HD video, virtual reality, and remote-controlled drones: They’re three of the biggest trends in the tech sector right now, and they’ve all come together in one amazing package.
For any aspiring filmmakers, wannabe pilots, or gear-heads aching to try the next big thing, it’s time to get acquainted with the Aerix VIDIUS HD, the world’s smallest HD video drone.
This latest innovation from Aerix packs a ton of functionality into just 4.3 centimeters, including 720p digital imaging, an altitude assistance module for steady flights, and up to seven minutes of flight time on just 20 minutes’ charge.
In addition to seamless mobile integration thanks to the VIDIUS app, this new drone also boasts “Goggle Mode,” which lets any pilot experience their drone’s point of view, in first person, in real time. Just put the smartphone app into goggle mode, plug your device into the included VR goggles, and enjoy the amazing views in real time. You can also save your videos and images for playback later; the VIDIUS app allows for intuitive sharing on any number of channels, from social media to email.
Ready to fly straight out of the box, the Aerix VIDIUS HD is notable for one last thing: Its price tag. You can get your hands on this amazing gadget for just $115 and the price of two AAA batteries; a stripped-down model (sold without VR goggles) is also available for $95.
