Jackie, the indoor drone

Jackie is the name of a new drone designed for indoor use.  The design is a modified Crazflie copter with video that links to an app on your smartphone.  The designers posed possible uses such as checking if you locked the front door, monitoring and talking to pets, and home security.  Because we all have so much to think about every day, Jackie is like an assistant that can patrol the house and ease our minds when we are away.  The designers envision other uses as well; from security in storage facilities to maintenance checks, Jackie would be very useful especially in remote areas or places that people do not access regularly.  The group that designed the drone is currently raising funds on Kickstarter.
