Spectacular Video Shows Flyability's Gimball Drone Exploring Ice Caves

This means that when the cage runs into something (like a massive ice wall), the force of the impact is absorbed by the cage and translated into rotational energy, while the drone inside remains stable and continues traveling generally in the direction that it was traveling in before.

So far, Flyability has been concentrating on developing Gimball as an industrialinspection drone, but this video highlights its capability as a search and rescue robot, especially in environments that are too complex or dangerous for any other robot to successfully navigate.

The big question now is when Flyability will take this unique mix of resilience, flexibility, and inherent safety and take it from $25,000 specialty drone to something that a kind of terrible drone pilot like myself can actually afford.

Swiss company Flyability said its robot, called Elios, can reach places too dangerous for humans.

Flyability's Marc Gandillon said: 'It is unique in the market because of a very simple thing - the gimbal in the middle allows the drone to be decoupled so the cage protecting it can rotate freely around the drone, and technically what it brings to the drone is the ability to have a collision with an obstacle and for it to remain stable.'

'Most of the rescues we were doing were at night with strong winds and in fog so I don't know if this would be a limitation for the drone but I think everybody would be able to get a lot of help from this kind of technology,' he said.
