A new technology that lets users control a dreamboat’s sails using their smartphone has been unveiled by the Dutch startup Dream Chasers.
The Dream Chaser, which has already won the right to test its first unmanned aerial vehicle, has now announced that it has signed up the United States Patent and Trademark Office for patent applications.
The company has also launched a patent application for its patented, “Directional Flight Control” system, which uses onboard computers to control the boat’s motion.
Dream Chaser founder and CEO David Farr says his company aims to create a future in which humans can “control the dream” of their dreams.
“The dream is to control your dreams, but the dreamer needs to be at a safe distance, away from the computer,” Farr said in a statement.
“Dreamers are not autonomous robots that could take over and control our dreams.
Dreamers are our own little machines.
Dream machines will be controlled by humans, not robots.””
Dream Chasers is a startup focused on building autonomous vehicles,” he added.
“We want to create an ecosystem of people who are dreaming and driving vehicles to enable the future.”
The company will also work with US Air Force scientists to develop a new form of autonomous flying robot, according to a Dream Chaser blog post.
The new machine will be developed to enable humans to dream of flying without needing to control their aircraft.
The dream machines will first be piloted on commercial flights, Farr told the BBC.
“Then they’ll be flying into space and flying into the ground, and that’s a whole other level,” he said.
