The helium filled flying robot Skye is a fascinating and affordable tool for aerial advertising and entertainment. Skye can depict products or figures as a flying show element and can perform every movement you can imagine while being safe enough to be touched in flight! Our vision is to let aerial entertainment become an integral part in everyday life in environments such as concerts or sports events.

Was ist das Besondere an diesem Projekt?

Skye’s uniqueness is characterized by its combination of safety, agility and visibility. It can be touched in flight and easily pushed away. It is further the only aerial robot known to us that can maintain any pose in space. Thanks to the majestic flight dynamics of Skye and its friendly appearance, people are astonished and characterize it as friendly. Long battery life assures hours of continuous operation.
