Buy your own ‘Dragonfly’ Robotic Drone for $119

How would you like to own your own dragonfly robot, the same type that the Air Force spent a million dollars developing. Well now you can from a company called TechJect. The dragonfly, that was developed with an Air Force grant, weighs less than one ounce and is the size of a flying insect.
One of the cool features is that it can be operated with an Apple (AAPL) iPhone, and you can use it for home security with the built-in hi-def camera. It can also be used for games.

The company is using Indiegogo to raise funds for its project with a goal of $111,000 that has already been exceeded many times over. As a matter of fact, the company has raised over half a million dollars at the time this article was written, and they still have a couple more weeks to go. A perfect example of how crowd funding really works.

A donation of $119 will get you a NOISELESS Alpha Dragonfly. 429 out of 500 have been claimed so far. The Delta, Gamma, and Omega Dragonfly packages are sold out. But you can still get the Dragonfly Swarm pack with Google Pad for $1199. Delivery wil be in July of 2013.
