Clarity Best for Safety

Sept. 29. 2016—Calif. Gov. Brown vetoed a bill we helped oppose which would have restricted drone flight. His veto message says it would have caused “significant regulatory confusion by creating a patchwork of federal, state, and local restrictions on airspace.” We support clear rules for drone operation that everyone can understand and follow. It’s the best way to ensure safety and to realize the tremendous economic potential of drones.

MOTA Smart Watch G2 Puts Your Phone On Your Wrist

Late in 2015 we launched the world’s smallest, lightest drone, MOTA JETJAT® Nano. We followed it with six more recreational and commercial drones. They’ve earned “best of” press coverage at events like CES Las Vegas, CES Asia, and Toy Fair. Commercial drones are generating buzz for their efficiency, cost reduction and safety; recreational ones because they’re “just plain fun to fly” as WIRED magazine called our Nano. We’re housing them under the widely recognized MOTA brand to jumpstart them into a worldwide market Goldman Sachs predicts will zoom to $38 billion by 2020.

Innovation Meets Style: TAMO

We’ve rolled our consumer electronics for mobile users into their own brand, TAMO, to better reflect their combination of engineering innovation and a fresh, stylish look. In the first half of 2016 we introduced several new CE products, among them Apple-certified extra-long Lightning cables in the very latest colors and a pair of powerful, ultra-slim battery cases for the Galaxy S7 / S7 edge.

We’re hard at work on bringing you exciting new drones and consumer electronics. Stayed tuned for what’s to come!
