Inspire 1

DJI has taken the best from their Phantom 2 Vision + and the larger Octo the S1000, which is the one that all the professionals use, and merged the best of both worlds. The compactness and maneuverability of the smaller Phantom and the more advanced features and hardware of the larger S1000. They have also designed the first camera set up on a quad-copter that allows the camera to not only tilt up and down but now for the first time to be able to pan a full 360 degrees around. Because of this they have designed the landing gear to transform in mid air and lift out of the way of the view of the camera. This gives more versatility to the pilot.  Now we can have another person take complete control of the camera so the pilot can just focus on flying which improves on safety.  As the pilot is executing the flight pattern the other person controlling the camera can get the shots that normally we would have to slow down or stop for. This allows us to get the best shot faster, saving you money and time.  The camera is small but packs a big punch. It is recording in 4k HD and takes still pics at 12MP.  The Inspire also has the ability to take pictures with GPS.  This expands what we can do for our clients. This allows us to be able to do HD aerial mapping and surveying for many different applications.

Just surfing the net and thinking about how I want our company image to stay clean and simple. That goes for all that we create as well. Not simple as in lazy, but the beautiful clean design that we strive for. Too many designers are over-thinking and over crowding what might have been the perfect design.

I ran into this article and wondered what in my childhood influenced me in how I design now. Think about it. Can you pin point any events or day to day life that have an influence in your design style.

“Steve Jobs’ interest in design began with his love for his childhood home….developers such as Joseph Eichler and his imitators built houses that featured floor-to-ceiling glass walls, open floor plans, exposed post-and-beam construction, concrete slab floors and lots of sliding glass doors. His houses were smart and cheap and good. They brought clean design and simple taste to lower-income people.”
“I love it when you can bring really great design and simple capability to something that doesn’t cost much,” he said as he pointed out the clean elegance of the Eichlers. “It was the original vision for Apple. That’s what we tried to do with the first Mac. That’s what we did with the iPod.”
