DJI Mavic Air: hands-on – Emphasis on ‘hand’

Have you ever wondered at the power that resides in your hands? Just lift up your hand. Yes, right there. Now watch as this drone follows your hand’s every move. Why? Because it is equipped with 3D tracking tech that allows the pilot to put down the controller and wave their hands in the air instead. We saw this tech demonstrated at the South African launch of DJI’s new drone, the Mavic Air. This ...[Read More]

The DJI Mavic Air is the drone we’ve always wanted

Want the foldability of the DJI Mavic with the compact dimensions of the DJI Spark, along with the smarts of all of DJI’s finest quadcopters combined, and 4K video capabilities? Of course you do. DJI’s latest — and most compelling — attempt to part us from our hard-earned cash is just what the drone enthusiast ordered. It’s called the Mavic Air. We loved the SparkR...[Read More]

DJI Spark — Didn’t think you wanted a drone? You do now…

For most of us, drones are still a bit like camcorders were in the ’80s – great gadgets to have around, as long as someone else is responsible for them. They’re just a bit, well, needy. First, there’s the cost. Then carrying the thing around. Followed by finding somewhere to fly it. Then, most likely, a humiliating tree-based incident. But the Spark is different. DJI’s previous m...[Read More]

DJI Phantom 4 — Action Cam of the Year 2016

You used to have to be a qualified 747 pilot to fly a drone without it looking like someone had put a god in charge of the controls, but DJI’s Phantom 4 is so simple that even a dog could do it. Well, maybe a highly trained one. If those paws could operate a touchscreen, Jock could also use the Phantom’s new object-tracking system, which locks the camera onto a particularly gnarly subj...[Read More]

Light Start – The No-Cellphone Edition

DJI announces the Matrice 200-series camera-centric drones Long story short, you’re not going to buy this drone. You might want to but unless your business is cinematography or you routinely pay pilots to do stuff for you, DJI’s newly-announced Matrice 200 drone series is probably out of reach. It’s still sexy though, with the new series boasting enough space for three different ...[Read More]

Stuff’s Gadget and App Award winners are…

Here at Stuff Towers we spend an inordinate amount of time fiddling with gadgets, apps, robot vacuum cleaners, IP cameras, action cameras, regular cameras, and anything else we can get our mitts on. The downside of this is trying to keep track of the batteries and cables that come with them, the upshot is you get the distilled knowledge gleaned from our collective experience and the many hours spe...[Read More]

Light Start – A new Inspire, pop-up SPUD, Wonder Woman, and Pokémon Go tweaks

Another day, another drone – The Mavic Pro is DJI’s 4K reply to GoPro’s foldable Karma

Usually its karma biting someone else, rather than someone else trying to take a bite out of Karma. DJI has revealed its newest drone, called the Mavic Pro, and if it’s not a direct reply to GoPro’s new Karma drone then we’ve never seen a direct reply before. When it comes to DJI’s flyers, we’re used to the Phantom form factor — white, looks like it’s stan...[Read More]

DJI opening their own drone arena in Korea

We’ve seen skate parks and BMX tracks, racetracks and even areas where you go to traipse around with your RC vehicles. We’re not even going to go into the existence of cricket and rugby fields or facilities dedicated to other sports. But we never thought we’d see something of this sort dedicated to drones. That’s what DJI has in mind with their drone arena, which opens Yong...[Read More]

Congratulations, it’s a bundle. No, r...[Read More]

Light Start – Disney’s Death Star, DJI’s new toy, Hyperloop is a game, and CaptionBot

What kind of world would we live in if Disney had an inflatable Death Star? Disney bought the rights to Star Wars, do you really think that they’d be averse to creating their own space station? Robert Bigelow, of Bigelow Aerospace, certainly has ideas in that direction, expressing the hope that Disney or a company like them might sponsor a space station created from the inflatable modules th...[Read More]

Smarter, lighter, faster, better – DJI’s Phantom 4 is a seriously clever drone

DJI has just taken the wraps off the Phantom 4, setting the new standard for drones with some top new tech. The Phantom 4 is an evolution of the Phantom 3 Professional we saw last year, and rightly leaves the Phantom 3 Standard standing – on account of the whopping new 73km/h top speed. The quadcopter got its maiden flight at the launch event in New York’s Hell’s Kitchen district...[Read More]
