The aquatic drone is fitted with a detachable plastic and Styrofoam hull, complete with plastic fins—or “foils”—that create lift as the drone picks up speed. This allows the boat to cruise just above the surface of the water.
Better still, the device can do double duty as an aerial drone as well. Just detach the drone component from its plastic hull, and the iOS or Android app automatically flips into flying mode.
