Staaker1 is a drone which follows and films the user automatically and uses a tracker that is attached to the user’s arm. The development of Staaker1 is the result of a successful joining of design and high technology, and design-thinking has been applied at all stages of the process. Staaker1 was launched on 18 August 2017.

Panel remarks

Staaker1 stands out amongst the multitude of drones by taking the extreme user seriously. The sturdy, waterproof control with large buttons can be attached to the arm, allowing for the necessary but limited control of the drone when used with mittens and gloves and while hurtling down the side of steep mountainsides. With the drone's ability to predict where you are going and follow you there accurately, this is a useful and fun tool for pro and hobby photographers alike. The drone and remote control form a solidly designed and well-functioning duo. The Staaker1 team proves that Norwegian innovation can find its place even in a market with huge international competition. This is a team and product we believe in!
