Have you ever dreamed of what it would be like to fly? Now you can know. There's a drone being developed that you control using first-person virtual reality.

This thing looks absolutely awesome.

Once you strap on a pair of the HD virtual reality FLYBi goggles, you'll be able to see everything the drone does. You can adjust the view and pan around to see the sky around you and the object underneath.

The FLYBi takes off from a specialized Helideck and lands there automatically. You can set it to come back down, or it will return to the Helideck when it is out of power. The Helideck doubles as the charging pad for the FLYBi's three interchangeable batteries.

You control the FLYBi with an app on your smartphone, so you'll have complete control of everything. You can even make a flight path for your FLYBi and designate specific points where the drone will stop and hover so you can get a good view of its surroundings.

If this sounds like something that you'd be interested in, take a peek at the images below. It's amazing what technology we have at our fingertips today!
