The CEO of GoPro happened to mention that GoPro are making a Drone while on stage at the Code Conference.

This is HUGE news. We have been seeing so many cool drone concepts lately, including LILY. Now what happens when the king of action cameras makes a drone? I bet that this drone will be awesome and fairly affordable. And with the might of GoPro behind it I bet it will be a huge success.

Woodman also revealed that GoPro is working on a drone, slated for debut in the first half of 2016.

“It’s incredible to see our world from new perspectives. It’s a real ‘Oh my God’ moment,” said Woodman on stage at the conference. “We did that with our GoPro cameras, and we see a similar opportunity in the quadcopter market. It’s something that’s in our DNA, and we are excited about it across the company.”

I for one can’t wait for this. I had a PARROT AR.Drone 2.0 a while back and I loved it. Things have only been getting better since then.

In some other GoPro news, they have also announced a 6 camera mount to film 360° video. This one is more for the pros but should hopefully get us some better angles on fail compilations on YouTube.
