You can do it with your head movements and your eyes using a smart phone connected to a headset. And off you go! You can explore the world from above flying a drone carrying your ‘eyes’ in the form of a super small camera. – That’s what Pádraig did today assisted by a flight supervisor in the Wicklow mountains for a camera crew preparing a TV programme for RTE. The drone and related technology was supplied by the SMARTLab at UCD, who collaborate with An Saol researching several exciting technologies allowing sABI survivors to connect with to he world.

It was a long, tiring and difficult day out. But it was all worth it. By Christmas, Pádraig should be able to fly his own drone!
