Stuff (UK) - - HOT STUFF -

With the DJI Spark cost­ing over £400, it’s only re­ally an im­pulse buy for those who in­tend on us­ing it for their weekly bank heists. Still, aside from be­ing the most en­ter­tain­ing and ac­ces­si­ble fly­ing drone out there, the ges­ture-con­trolled ’copter was one of our very favourite new gad­gets of last year. Good news, then, that Ryze’s new Tello – a palm-sized drone made us­ing DJI and In­tel tech – will be avail­able for £99. It’ll only shoot at 720p, it flies for just 13 min­utes, and it looks a lot less durable than the Spark, but the 80g Tello is fully con­trol­lable with an app, of­fers au­to­mated fly­ing func­tions, and is pro­gram­mable to boot. It’s clearly try­ing to ap­peal to a younger au­di­ence… al­though, with a fea­ture set com­pa­ra­ble to much more ex­pen­sive ma­chines, there’s no need for kids to have all the fun. Bank rob­bers take note, though: it’s prob­a­bly too small to carry bags of cash. As hot as… the Joker’s crim­i­nal record £99 /
