Lately I’ve been spending a fair amount of time with drones and remote controlled helicopters. I was even able to register chaperonedrone.com for some future project. Today I came across this concept from Frog Design and I love it. Other then the problem of drones having an average flight time of 15 minutes and my rides usually lasting between 1:30 to 2:30 minutes, in a few years I can easily see this cycling drone concept in use.
“One, dubbed the Cyclodrone, was inspired by one designer’s frequent rides in the hills of Oakland, Calif. The concept calls for a drone that would fly in front of and behind cyclists to alert drivers of their approach.”
