ScanCam is a Norwegian semi-autonomous quadrotor drone that lives in a little mailbox-like home to keep it from the harsh elements and to recharge it.


The quadrotors can launch, recover, and recharge themselves at their huts (or “hangars” I guess), and when it snows (which I hear it doesn’t do once or twice a year), the bots can stay snug at home, enjoying their stylish furnishings which you can find at your friendly neighborhood IKEA as part of the new Röböüüüt collection.
