Sony is getting into the drone business with its new Airpeak project

Sony just announced the Airpeak project – its contribution to the field of camera drones, which will be based on the company’s imaging and sensing expertise as well as “3R” technology (Reality, Real-time and Remote). A short press release says that this project is aimed at the entertainment and “various” other industries, hinting at professional uses rather than consumer products. In fact, it’s not entirely clear if Sony will launch its own drone or if it will offer camera and sensor modules to drone makers.

More updates will be posted on the dedicated Airpeak site, leading up to the launch of the project in Spring of 2021. There’s really only the vague teaser video above to go on for now. Back in January Sony did file a patent for a foldable drone with a somewhat unusual design – ducted fans are mounted on pillars, so that they can be rotated into the drone’s body for transport and easily deployed before flight.

For comparison, the new DJI Mini 2 has its propellers mounted on arms that fold snugly next to the body when it's ready to go back into its small case.
