4. Drone Surfing

You’ve all probably heard of kitesurfing but what if you have a surfboard, smooth water conditions and a powerful drone available? You go DroneSurfing of course! The surfer in the video from 2016 is pulled along by a Freefly Alta 8. The Freefly is a high-end cinematic drone and it obviously has a lot of power to pull a guy along the water.

5. An omnicopter that plays fetch

Another project from students at ETH in Zurich, Switzerland. Here they’ve made a cool looking drone which happens to be pretty amazing at catching balls in its net. In just 20 milliseconds, the drone can calculate all possible trajectories of a thrown ball and decide which route is the most efficient to reach the ball and rapidly moves to the right spot to catch the ball.

We hope you enjoyed this list. If you know of any cool drone stories, let us know about it on our Facebook page and we’ll give you a shout out!
