FQ02W FQ777 Foldable Selfie Quadcopter Drone With Remote Control

This is a Drone with Remote Control. We acquired it in 2017. Its medium is molded abs plastic, electronic components. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

The rise in popularity of selfie photography has sparked new technologies that assist in its production. The FQ777 uses facial recognition to take photos of users from the air. Though unmanned aerial vehicles have long been a component of military strategies, the use of drones for commercial or personal use is a relatively new practice.
