Presenters "chuffed" with KD UK's gesture-controlled drone in Christmas Special episode

KD UK’s Gesturebotics Aura Drone impressed hosts on Friday night’s Gadget Show Christmas Special.

The show's tech experts commented on how responsive the drone was, and how easy it was to fly, with presenter Craig Charles commenting about how "chuffed" he was to receive the product.

Aura is the first flying drone that uses cutting edge Gesturebotics Technology to control its movements. The innovative Aura drone, aimed at children aged six-plus and adults, replaces the traditional joystick controller with an intuitive hand gesture control system that lowers the barrier to entry in drone piloting for children.

“We were confident that Aura would be a hit following the national media interest it received at London Toy Fair this year,” said Justin Clasby, Marketing Manager at KD UK. “We were thrilled to see the drone featured on the Gadget Show Christmas Special and even more excited that the presenters had such great, positive comments about the product. The drone has been out of stock at retail due to high demand, so we would encourage retailers to re-stock as soon as possible as we expect Aura to be at the top of many Christmas lists!"
