Shift Drone

There's a reason autonomous flying modes have been a key element of this year's big drone announcements: most people aren't that great at controlling them with what's in essence a legacy R/C plane controller. The Shift Drone overcomes that not with autonomy, but with a novel new control scheme. To fly it, you simply grab a stick-like box and wear a special ring on your thumb, which floats above the sensors on the top. Move your thumb up to go up, left to fly left, etc., giving you intuitive one-handed control. There's a 13 megapixel/4K camera on board, and an optional extension lets you control the camera and view real-time feed back via your smartphone.

  • GoPro Karma Drone

    Leave your favorite mount behind and take to the skies with the GoPro Karma Drone. More than a simple camera drone, the Karma is actually a series of separate accessories that work together to deliver great-looking aerial footage. It starts with the quadcopter itself, which has a folding design, a top speed of 35mph, and a run time of 20 minutes. The Karma Grip stabilizer slides inside, doing its best to keep your video smooth whether it's attached to the drone, a standard GoPro mount, or handheld. Finally, the touchscreen controller lets even novices get up and running with ease. The entire kit packs into a backback case, and is compatible with the new GoPro Hero 5 Black, Hero 5 Session, and the Hero 4.

  • Prodrone Robot Arm Drone

    It looks like something out of a sci-fi nightmare, but the Prodrone Robot Arm Drone is far more useful than intimidating. Based on the company's existing large capacity airframe, this aerial tool has a pair of five-axis robotic arms that can perform a number of tasks, from picking up and moving objects up to 22 lbs. to cutting wires and flipping switches at altitudes — up to 5,000 feet — where direct human interaction is inconvenient or impossible. Capable of operating in nearly any weather, it's limited only by the person at the controls.
