Fly Your Drone With a One-Handed Thumb Joystick

tumb_flyingtumb_control

South Korean start-up “this is engineering Inc.” has created a thumb operated joystick that allows a user to fly a drone with one hand. The user holds the joystick and inserts their thumb into an unattached ring. The joystick acts as a sensor and when you move your thumb a signal is sent to the drone to move in the same direction.

The South Koran company plans to start selling the new controller system next year.
