HEXO+, the Multiple Awarded Self-flying Camera Delivering Exceptional Aerial Footage, Will Be Exhibiting at ISPO Tradeshow in Munich, Feb 5-8
“As a rider and film-maker, I wanted to capture myself in action from a bird’s view, but getting an helicopter or a crew to pilot a drone following me is expensive and cumbersome. HEXO+ is the perfect rider’s companion to make amazing footage from above without a pilot”
Munich, Germany, January 27th 2015. The team behind HEXO+, the innovative autonomous flying drone, announced today that it will be exhibiting at ISPO Munich, the international main exhibition for sports business, from Feb 5-8th. The latest design of HEXO+ and its app, Winner of the ISPO BRANDNEW AWARD in the accessory category, will be featured at ISPO BRANDNEW village on booth #A1 140 BN11.
HEXO+ radically changes the way footage is captured and action sports are documented, making Hollywood style shots accessible to all with its unique user tracking system and camera movements’ library. HEXO+ has been awarded at CES in Las Vegas earlier this month as best Drone of CES by Videomaker, Best of CES by iPhoneLife and Showstopper « envisioneering innovation and design » award.
HEXO+ is incredibly easy to set up anywhere – simply use your smartphone app to set it on whatever path you desire to film you, and then focus solely on living the moment. This simple, hands-free process allows for total creativity. Complex shots suddenly become straightforward, and the user can become both director and star of its own movie. HEXO+ captures your best actions in stunning, artistic ways, without anyone being left out of the picture.
Xavier De Le Rue, big mountain legend, multiple times freeride world champion, explorer and HEXO+ co-founder explains “As a rider and film-maker, I wanted to capture myself in action from a bird’s view, but getting an helicopter or a crew to pilot a drone following me is expensive and cumbersome.
