Ryze Tech, the creator of the Tello mini-drone, announced the launch of Tello EDU, a programmable unit that expands the educational opportunities with support for additional programming languages and drone swarms. 

Tello EDU has been built on these strengths. Users can program it with Scratch, Swift, and Python, offering options for beginners and advanced coders. It comes packaged with four Mission Pads, physical waypoints the drone can recognize and respond to. Tello EDU also allows users to access the video stream data and discover more advanced controls like basic gesture controls by coding.

There is still plenty of focus on fun. While it weighs just 87g, the Tello EDU has an HD camera and flying modes for flips and tricks. Tello EDU also has dedicated app with virtual missions to challenge young minds, and there is a “Tello Space Travel” adventure on Apple’s Swift Playgrounds app.

Learn with Mission Pads and Program a Swarm 

Tello EDU will be sold with four Mission Pads, a colorful accessory that allows for a richer programming experience. Users can teach the Tello EDU to recognize its position based on the pads, and can trigger a specific response.

With a WiFi access point, users can program a swarm of multiple drones, instructing them to perform synchronized missions or execute complex choreography. Mission Pads play a key role here, helping drones to keep understand their location and react to commands accordingly.

Supports More Programming Languages

Tello EDU supports several programming languages such as Scratch, Swift and Python. Using a basic Scratch editor or the Tello EDU app, users can create missions through block programming. In Apple’s Swift Playgrounds app users can find a “Tello Space Travel” lessons that will introduce users to a wider range of coding concepts and activities as they play the role of an astronaut exploring space. With the new SDK 2.0, users can create more advanced functionality, interacting with data from the video stream, creating possibilities like gesture control. This new feature offers students a great opportunity to learn the basics of complex subjects like computer vision.

Powered by DJI Technology with Assistance from Intel®

Tello EDU is powered by technology from two leading names: DJI and Intel. An Intel® Movidius™ vision processing unit inside helps the vision positioning of Tello EDU enabling it to hover in place for stability and safety.  The flight controller and vision positioning system are derived from the marketing leading technology found in DJI’s larger drones.

Price and Availability

Tello EDU will retail for $129. Tello EDU can be controlled by Tello app, Tello EDU app with smart devices, or Swift Playgrounds on iPad.

The box comes with 1 drone, 2 sets of spare propellers, 4 Mission Pads, 1 battery, and a USB charging cable. Tello EDU is also compatible with the GameSir T1d Bluetooth remote.

Above all, Tello edu is definitely worth it.
