PowerVision launches the PowerEgg design challenge
A new global design contest is due to kick off this summer, as announced by PowerVision. The PowerEgg Design Challenge aims to inspire both professional and amateur designers to submit outstanding external designs for the pioneering and elegant PowerEgg flying robot, PowerVision’s first consumer drone.
The PowerEgg boasts a sleek, unique egg-shaped exterior and is packed with advanced technologies including a 360° panoramic 4K camera on a 3-axis gimbal, real-time HD video transmission up to 3000m, and advanced ‘optical flow’ sensors for indoor navigation. Built for easy portability, the drone is a unique blank canvas for designers and artists to express their creativity. Check out the new launch film for the PowerEgg.
The First Place winner will receive a $3,000 cash prize, a first edition PowerEgg and royalties from the sale of PowerEgg consumer drones featuring their design. The Second Place winner will receive a $1,500 cash prize, a first edition PowerEgg and royalties for their design. The Third Place winner will receive a $1,000 cash prize, a first edition PowerEgg and royalties for their design. Ten runner-up entrants will each receive a $200 Amazon gift voucher and a $300 gift voucher towards buying a PowerEgg (via the PowerVision website).
Entries can be submitted until 7th August, and finalists will be determined by public voting on the PowerVision website. A PowerVision judging panel will choose the three winning designs, as well as the runner up entries on 11th August. Winners will be posted on the PowerVision website and social media channels.
According to PowerVision CEO Wally Zheng, “To celebrate the launch of our first consumer drone, PowerVision is excited to promote the creativity of our users through this PowerEgg Design Contest. We’re looking forward to seeing the creative new designs!”
