Snapchat has always been famous due to the app it made with many useful features. The send message getting disappeared after 24 hours, photos and videos and it has got a very wide response form the users.
The official name of the company was Snap but they later changed it t Snapchat. Snapchat is a multimedia message app and Snap is basically a technology and camera company located in the U.S created by Booby Murphy and Evan Spiegel.
A project behind which Snapchat is working for years now is nothing but a pair of eyes floating in the air. In the recent news, it surfaced that Snap has been working on building a drone.
And this has been briefed by three people working on the project and they also asked to remain anonymous as the details are very confidential. The drone could help Snapchat’s users to take photos and videos aerially and then send that visual data to the company’s headquarters.
No official announcement has been made about whether when to launch the drone and it is still not clear to many when would it become commercially available in the store. Though it is a technology-related matter, that’s why like other tech companies Snap will first go for experiments.
Snapchat surprises us with Drones
Snap has been working on the projects for a few years now and we saw a hint of it when Snap launched Spectacle Sunglasses which has the ability to record short video clips. Release of snap chat spectacles witnessed long ques just waiting to join the list of modern eyewear.

The sources we have reported that Snapchat will sit $14 to $14 for each share and the value of the company will be $22.2 Billion in total.
The company sets its I.P.O pricing at $17 / share and it is higher than what was expected and it increases the company value at 24 $ Billion.
Snap takes a different approach to consumer drone equations. Instead of making a heavy giant, Snap chose to create a high-quality drone with advanced recording equipment and featuring it in a light-weight ultra-compact body. The compact design makes the drone cooler.
Snap’s chief executive Evan Spiegel says is the public offering that cameras augment the way a person communicates instead of the person’s memory and further adds “We are at the beginning of how much potential a camera can have and what can it do in future”
Snap makes Drones smarter
Snap’s drones just weigh 620 grams bind together with the help of magnets. You can launch the drone from your hand so that it would reduce the chance of damages while deep landing. Vantage Robotics designs the blades with shrouds with the help of “tensengrity”. The design of the blades is outstanding, 2 diagonally opposite blades will help to speed the drone whereas the other 2 blades will help to slow the drone down and it astonishingly creates a perfect balance. The body of the drones rotates reacting to the pairs of the blade rotating in opposite directions.
Snap will allow you to carry out a number of automated camera movements that keeps your focus on the action while the drone operates with a range of 150 meters.
