DJI's first-person goggles look to the future of drone flight


The DJI Goggles display a 1920X1080 image in front of each of your eyes, which is like having two HD displays strapped to your face. The company says that wearing the goggles is like looking at a 216-inch home theater screen set about three meters away. You can wirelessly connect to a Mavic Pro or Phantom 4 drone and use head movements to control both aircraft yaw — the spin around its center axis — as well as camera tilt. Up to two goggles can connect to the Mavic Pro drone, so you can share your aerial adventures with a friend, too.

DJI has also improved its new three-axis camera stabilizer with the new Ronin 2. The update is aimed squarely at filmmakers like Ethan Hawke, who used the original Ronin to film his biopic Blaze. The gimbals on Ronin 2 have more power, says the company, which gives them more torque to carry larger cameras. The carbon fiber monocoque frame is light and sturdy, and DJI has improved the ability to connect cameras and accessories via the Ronin 2’s integrated power and data ports.
