Flone can be controlled by a smartphone and allows another smartphones to fly and take photos.

Smartphones can do most anything, and now, thanks to three engineers from Spain, they can fly on a specially-designed platform to take aerial photo and video.

Flone is a hardware and software interface that turns a smartphone into a flying apparatus that can fly up to 20 meters above the ground. It is controlled using another smartphone.

Flone was created by Lot Amorós, a multidisciplinary artist and computer engineer, Cristina Navarro, a technical engineer, and Alexandre Oliver, an industrial engineer. They created Flone for the “Next Things 2013 – Next Space, the Second Global Art and Technology Challenge,” a call for ideas by Telefónica I+D and LABoral.
