In New York in February? Check Out Our Drones at Toy Fair!

By | Blog | No Comments

Toy Fair LogoToy Fair is one of the largest toy shows in the world. It’s where most every child would like to be, and we’ll be there next month with a flock of new drones.

They run from battle-ready, kid-friendly micro fliers to a compact high-performance camera drone that’s smaller than a sheet of paper but captures stunning 4K video from thousands of feet away.

And we’ll have our JETJAT ULTRA, selected by parents, industry experts and journalists as a finalist for 2017 Toy of the Year. Small enough to hide in a teacup, the ULTRA sends video right to your smartphone.

Take our latest drones up for a spin. Toy Fair opens at the Javits Center Saturday, February 18, and runs through Tuesday, February 22. We’ll be in booth 5947 on the first floor.

New iPhones Tomorrow

By | Blog | No Comments

iPhone line-up

 

Apple unveils its newest iPhone line up tomorrow at 10:00 PT.

By many measures the iPhone 6s is the best-selling smartphone in the world. So, how could they improve on it?

Well, their phones could be even thinner and lighter. And of course higher performance.

Our sources in the heart of Shenzhen and elsewhere tell us what you can look for. In decreasing probability:

  • Apple Lightning connector / Bluetooth replacing the earbud jack for thinner design.
  • Cooler colors.
  • Increased water resistance.
  • New dual-camera system.
  • Higher-capacity storage.
  • Better optical image stabilization, including for smaller models.
  • Fingerprint reader.
  • Wireless charging.
  • 3D Touch or Force Touch home button, or even no home button at all.
  • Edge-to-edge organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screen.
  • Iris scanner.

Mmmm, we’d love to see that OLED screen, whether watching a movie or using VR to pilot a drone.
Headphone jack OTOH, meh, no great loss: that technology’s been around since the beginning of landline telephones, longer even than museum pieces like folding maps and floppy disks.

Whatever Cupertino dishes up tomorrow, we’ll be there for you with accessories to make Apple’s latest phones even more fun and useful than they promise to be.

And those of you wanting to just hang on to what you’ve got, we’ve got you covered with a stylish array of MOTA mobile accessories. They’ll help keep your devices protected, juiced up, and raring to go.

 

MOTA Drones Streak through Toy Fair

By | Blog | No Comments

You made it through the Big Easy’s Mardi Gras, or maybe you’re gearing up for the Grammys in L.A., but if you’re in New York City this week, you’re probably wishing for temps out of the single digits.

Toy Fair could be enough to warm your heart. It’s one of the largest toy shows in the world, and we’re there with our newest just-for-fun drones!

One of them, the world’s littlest, even goes on an adventure. In an illustrated story we’re showing at our booth, JETJAT Nano™ takes off exploring. He has several airborne scrapes before his family finds him again.


It’s what Dr. Seuss might have written had The Cat in the Hat flown a drone on his own, and not too different from the rave reviews for Nano in WIRED magazine, Amazon, and elsewhere!

You can create your own Nano story: test fly the little guy right there, or take his newer brother, JETJAT Nano-C, up for a spin.

Think Nano plus a camera, making Nano-C the world’s smallest,lightest video drone.

Add a few more gumballs and you’ll get JETJAT Live-W. It’s small enough to land on your palm but smart enough to record live streams in hi def for a thrilling bird’s eye view of the show floor.

We’re also showing off our many other premium toys such as the Kendama wooden ball game of skill, fire truck engines that shoot real water, ultra-realistic construction trucks, and foam play and puzzle mats for the very young.

If you want to play with any of them, better hurry. The show opened this past Saturday and runs only through tomorrow, Tuesday. We’re in booth 4989 on the first floor of the Javits Center.

 

 

New Drones Landing at CES!

By | Blog | No Comments

Hope everyone had a happy turkey day and profitable Black Friday / Cyber Monday!

This holiday season we’re asking Santa to fly the world’s smallest, lightest drone, JETJAT™ Nano, to every household. “FUN FUN FUN!!!” wrote one customer over at Amazon, where it’s been flying out the doors faster than Santa’s sleigh.

Free Fly Safely! Poster

Our little Nano packs outsized performance in an über-small package. It gives everyone the thrill of flight, so we also launched Fly Safely! to encourage drone etiquette. See how to tread the sky lightly; download our nifty free infographic poster!

Now for the sneak peek: With New Year’s approaching, we’re excited to be jetjatting off to North America’s premier consumer electronics show, CES Las Vegas, Jan. 6 – 10.

We’ve cooked up a smörgåsbord of über-slick drones to demo, from powerful little personal flight machines to commercial-grade workhorses capable of autonomous missions.

Here’s a sneak preview of one:

If you’re at CES please stop by our booth 72749 in the Sands Expo. We’re right on the main aisle.

We’ll have many more fun new products in the coming year.

Meanwhile don’t forget to show off your JETJAT Nano piloting skills to your friends!
