Hex: A copter that anyone can fly!

I apologize for copying their own title, but the basic principle of their quadrocopter couldn’t be explained in a better way.

I love quadrocopters. I though about buying the nanocopter, but it requires a pc and PS3 controller to work. I have a mac, and even if I did have a PC, I don’t really like the idea of having to move around a computer to control a toy. On the other hand, there is the smartphone-controlled  parrot AR drone, which retails for 300€. Not for me.

This one combines the best of the two worlds.

It’s at the same time rather cheap, user-friendly, it can record video, and supports different add-on which can be purchased later. The frame is 3D printed, and can be changed anytime.

As Hex is gaining more and more attention from the DIY community and online press, and has already 26 times their initial pledge, some stretched goals are coming, free of charge:

You still have a lot of time to preorder Hex, as their campaign still has 32 days left to go.

3D printed skull from Joshua Harker is now on sale

You may or may not remember, but this high-end piece of art is wildly considered as the first step towards 3D printer mainstreamness. News said: “look, this beautiful piece of modern art is 3D printed, that’s a revolution !!!” Of course, for 95$, it’s not the same result as any makerbot. After printing, the skull is individually sculpted with a laser. Anyway, If you like it, head over here to get yours, shipping is free until May !!!
