Putting together ORBIT

  With ORBIT You can do everything that a smart phone/tablet does all the while hovering/flying close by. Being voice activated and intuitive you can now just speak commands and ORBIT goes to work. ORBIT can take pictures, Text, Make calls, Take Videos of an event for future viewing. ORBIT can display messages on its L.E.D screen play music and you can watch videos if you like, all the while its hovering in front of you. ORBIT- can be controlled remotely with an app via a cell or just hover waiting for your next command.Sound interesting? Yes it does.

  Hi, My name is Thomas King, I have been working on "ORBIT" for two years now developing relationships with programmers as well as designers to design the outer casing and the internal components that will allow ORBIT to function as the most advanced autonomous smart device ever created. As you can see this is a very technologically advanced device and will be requiring a lot of hard work and innovation to bring it all together. Currently I am going to be working with Movidius in San Mateo, California to develop the software for the operation of the Depth Perception, Spatial Awareness and IR technology. Software is being developed that will allow for a user to speak commands via a Bluetooth device that will allow you to control the direction, and the other functions of ORBIT instead of a handheld RC controller or a touch screen. You will be able to access all of the programs via voice commands, such as " ORBIT Wake Up" or "Launch/Hover", "Dock", "Goto Email", "Record Video", "Place Phone Call", "Play a Song" I am confident that in roughly 18 months we can achieve this goal as all of the technology is there we just have to bring it all together under one roof so to speak. Lets talk a little about the actual device. As for the actual Embodiment of ORBIT I am working with another company based in Laguna Hills, California "Titoma". Titoma has been instrumental in helping with the Injection Molding Process,Tooling as well and the Electronics design. In addition to the cylindrical shape we are also working on a Triangular Embodiment having a L.E.D screen on each side and three high speed rotors in each corner. I will be posting some additional renderings soon.But As you can see this is going to take a lot of capital to finance all the research and development that goes into a device such as this. I believe with hard work,determination and the inspiration of American engineers and scientists we can make this happen. Additionally, I am going to be setting up a newsletter publication for all those who pledge as to keep everyone informed and up to date on the progress being made. As of right now we are in the infancy stages of this new and exciting endeavor So please help me to bring this new awesome project to life.

* TIMEFRAME *

As I stated above I've have been developing " ORBIT " now for the better part of 2 years, working on the design, features, feasibility, and so on.... I have been working with the above named companies and their respective engineers to work out all the bugs in the design,software and manufacturing issues. As of 12/17/2013 all of the components are ready to be brought together for final assembly and operational trials although there are going to be numerous trial and error sessions. I anticipate that in the next 6-8 months we will finalize the designs of the actual casing and then move onto fitting all of the electronics and software on board. We project this to take up the better part of a year, this going to be a very time consuming portion to the project as everything needs to fit properly and operate as intended...and the only way to accomplish this is Yep! you guessed it TRIAL AND ERROR. Fitting and refitting Tweak this, Tweak that, remold it a little here, a little there, its a very tedious and yet very exciting time in the grand scheme of things. As things are progressing now and with the additional funding, I/we expect that with all of the finals and trials at hand we can be ready with a finished prototype early 2016. I hope you will follow along with me as " ORBIT " takes shape and takes to the skies, Because the next 2 years are going to change the landscape of Smart Technology as we know it.

                                      **CORRECTION**

In my video I state that upon initial launch ORBIT will launch and hover 15' feet in front of you and 5 ' inches to the left or right. I meant to say 15" inches in front of you not 15' Feet.

Risks and challenges

When I first invented " ORBIT " I knew It was going to be a challenge that will push technology to its utmost boundaries, we would be developing new never heard of engineering feats. Getting this device to accomplish all of these mind blowing actions is going to be an enormous task that I am confident as a team we can overcome. I have been working with some of most innovative problem solving individuals I have ever met and I know we can make this dream a reality. I have contacts with Electronics Manufacturers, Hardware Developers, Software Designers, Drone Specialists, Aero Dynamics experts. Everything is in place now we need to move into the next phase! Making it a reality. For more info about " ORBIT " contact orbit5000@yahoo.com
