Facial and body tracking abilities of the Tello

The abilites of the DJI RYZE Tello drone are unparalleled when it comes to to custom drone programming. This “toy” drone has some very impressive functions straight out of the box, but as GeaxGx1 from Youtube shows us in the video, the possibilities seem endless.

The Tello drone is a lot of fun by itself. But it is also has the abilities to apply some well-known computer vision techniques to expand on what this drone is capable of. ~GeaxGx1

We have seen some very impressive apps and packages become available for the Tello Drone in the past few months, Vola-Tello the developer of TelloFPV is also on the bleeding edge of this technology. You can find his well written Tello app here:

Vola-Tello has been quoted in saying…

“This is the most impressive Tello project I have seen!”.
