Edgybees launches first augmented reality game for DJI drone users

The game is centered on flying the drone through a virtual obstacle course while collecting prizes and avoiding obstacles along the way. Drone pilots can compete over the best performance, points and time for a coveted place in the high-score leaderboard with other drone pilots around the world.

Edgybees, an augmented reality technology company, launched a new augmented reality (AR) mobile application that is compatible with DJI drones, including the Phantom 3, the Phantom 4 and the Mavic Pro. Developed using DJI’s software development kit, the ‘Drone Prix’ is the first ever AR mobile app created for DJI’s aerial platforms.

The game is centered on flying the drone through a virtual obstacle course while collecting prizes and avoiding obstacles along the way. Drone pilots can compete over the best performance, points and time for a place in the leaderboard with other drone pilots around the world.

“When we first came up with the idea for this app, we wanted to create a new experience for pilots combining the joys of flying with the thrills of gamification. The Drone Prix AR app is really the first augmented reality social game designed specifically to do just that,” said Menashe Haskin, Edgybees CTO and co-founder. “In contrast with flight simulators, Drone Prix AR provides a much more immersive experience that combines virtual obstacles with real-life piloting skills. DJI’s Mobile SDK allowed us to bring our idea to life very quickly and we are really excited to see how this app will change the way people experience flying a drone.”

Similar to the DJI GO 4 App, the Drone Prix is a mobile app that can be downloaded to the user’s smartphone. Once the drone, remote controller and mobile app are powered on and connected, the user will get the drone’s camera view on their app, they can then select the course and start flying.
