Cooliris partners to integrate drone technology for photography
Cooliris (mobile App developers) has announced a new partnership with Aibotix, a leading innovator in autonomous aerial vehicles, to bring a brand new consumer sharing experience for drone photography. While drone photography is in early stages of its evolution, the partnership creates a new era in the history of photography.
Cooliris will be the ﬁrst consumer photo application to integrate with drones, enabling consumers to gain a unique perspective in real-time and share the drone-captured photos and videos to private groups on their iPad and iPhone.
“Cooliris loves to be at the leading edge of customer-centric innovation. We’re excited to partner with Cooliris and introduce their beautiful and fast mobile photo experience to our customers,” said Joerg Lamprecht, Founder and CEO from Aibotix.
Using Aibotix’s next generation multicopter, which has a built-in camera mount, and Cooliris Groups, consumers will be able to capture otherwise inaccessible aerial angles of landscapes, such as the Grand Canyon, or close-up action shots of surﬁng, skiing and other immersive activities, and share them with private groups of friends as the moment unfolds in real-time.
“Drone photography just got a higher dimension with the partnership of Aibotix and Cooliris,” said Soujanya Bhumkar, Cooliris CEO and co-founder. “What we will bring is a very accessible and enriched way for the everyday consumer to capture and privately share amazing aerial photos and videos with their close groups of friends.”
Consumers would also be able to use the Aibot X6 to capture photos at a party, an event or even a recreational activity, instead of being preoccupied with taking photos themselves and missing the action. With the private Cooliris group experience, the photos could be automatically shared into private groups so that those not in attendance would be able to gain a shared experience of the event and feel as if they were there.
