Fleye is the brain child of Laurent Eschenauer and Dimitri Arendt, two Belgium based entrepreneurs. Not satisfied with current drone designs, they came up with Fleye; small, autonomous, flying machine floating around and helping in daily lives.

Fleye is open and programmable. It has an API and SDK allowing anyone to build and extend over it.

The main innovation of Fleye is its unique spherical design, where all moving parts are fully shielded. This means that you can hold, touch, push, and bump into Fleye without any risks of injuring yourself and others. It also means that Fleye will be more robust when bumping into something.

How Fleye works

Fleye can be controlled through any smartphone (iOS/android supported). You don’t need piloting skills, just select a flying camera mode (selfie, panorama, virtual tripod, etc.), watch the live video stream and focus on capturing great photos and videos. You prefer to be in manual control? Then use our virtual gamepad or hook a bluetooth gamepad to your smartphone.
