The Tello Drone Takes Off At CES 2018Ryze Robotics

Say Hello To The New Tello Drone

Ryze Robotics, a drone start-up, has completed development of its first intelligent toy drone called the Tello, and will officially debut the new product at CES 2018 in Las Vegas. Ryze built the Tello with advanced technology foundations from DJI and Intel. With support from these technology partners, Ryze is confident that the Tello will deliver an amazing flight experience and unleash the potential of what a drone can do.

Tello was designed not just for fun, but with ease of use and safety in mind. Features include 13 minute flight times,  its ability to Hover, Auto Takeoff, Auto Landing, and Low Battery Protection. All of this is made possible by the high-performance Intel® vision processing unit (VPU) and DJI’s best-in-class flight stabilization technology.

“The idea of making play an essential part of learning and putting this concept into a drone makes the Tello more than just a toy. It’s an opportunity for kids and young engineers to discover the ingenuity and science behind aerial technology. Once they learn how it works, they will be able to do great things with it. We’re excited to see the Tello come to life and congratulate Ryze for their accomplishment,” said Paul Xu, DJI’s Vice President.

While it’s about the size of a smartwatch, the Tello houses an HD camera and comes with a pre-programmed one-touch flight function called EZ Shot“, letting you capture a 360 video, fly in a circle and command Tello to fly Up & Out seamlessly. Now you can spend more time posing for the camera and capture amazing footage, and less time controlling it. Whether you’re doing a flip, tossing it into the air or racing it through an obstacle course, controlling the Tello is made simple thanks to the advanced computer vision and stabilization technology that’s packed inside.

The Tello features the Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ 2 VPU which receives real-time data from Tello’s 5 sensors so it can “see” the world around it. With this dedicated vision intelligence, Tello can hover with astounding accuracy and land on an outstretched palm. With all this intelligence packed inside, users can focus on enjoying the action while Tello handles the rest.

All you’ll need is the Tello app on your smartphone, connect them through Wi-Fi and the fun of flight is at your fingertips.

The Tello is priced at $99 USD, with shipping to the U.S. set for March 2018. Pre-order the Tello Drone by clicking here.
