In 2010 when we started the Chelsea Apps Factory we had no idea what or how an apps company should be.  All you could be was an IOS developer and there was only one platform, so we started hiring developers for it.

The Volocopter VC200 has 18 separate rotors and looks like a giant insect. Its makers, E-volo, claim the one person passenger drone is more stable than a conventional helicopter. Packed with gyroscopes, accelerometers and magnetometers, an on-board computer system is able to fly the aircraft more or less autonomously. Google is working on something similar.
