This Drone has big GimBalls

When you are on a search and rescue mission or maneuvering through obstacles, you want to make sure your drone comes out unscathed, and in some cases it’s a matter of life and death on the line. The GimBall is a lightweight carbon fiber cage that surrounds a drone, ensuring its safe passage through dangerous obstacles and debris.

Instead of trying to avoid obstacles, it can just bounce right off of them and keep moving on. The GimBall makes search and rescue drone functionality much more efficient and productive.

The GimBall was created by Swiss company Flyability, and it recently won $1 million in UAE’s drone competition.
