Vivo Develops Smartphone with Drone Hybrid
Rancakmedia.com - In the following, we will provide information about Vivo with hybrid drones. This Chinese company has filed an extraordinary patent for a Vivo smartphone with a flying camera.
The camera can be removed from the smartphone, after which it can fly into the air to take the most imaginative shots from various angles.
The patent dubbed “Electronic device” was filed in December 2020 for Vivo Mobile Communication with the World Intellectual Property Office (WIPO) (WIPO). Today, July 1, 2021, a 20-page document has been made available to the public.
At first glance it looks like an ordinary smartphone. At the bottom, however, an additional compartment has been built in, which houses a covert camera system with dual cameras, three infrared proximity sensors, four propellers and an extra battery.
The camera system pulls out of the housing and can be completely removed along with the mounting bracket. The mounting bracket, with an integrated fingerprint sensor, can be removed from the small camera system.
The camera system can then fly into the air, due to the attached propellers being able to take photos from a greater distance. With infrared sensors, the distance to nearby objects can be determined to prevent collisions during flight.
In the air, the flying camera is able to change orientation to maintain added flexibility when recording. There is no information in the documentation whether Air Gestures will be supported, although it is assumed that the operation will be performed on a smartphone.
However, it is said that one camera will be placed above, the other camera will be positioned in front by placing the camera in a different place, consumers will still have the opportunity to capture from various points of view. The third and fourth cameras are available as options.

Therefore, the Air Pix model's camera has to be smaller than 10 cm and as a result it will never fit inside the smartphone cover. On the other hand, it has the obvious disadvantage of wind turbulence which will affect image clarity if the camera system is designed too small or too light.
