DJI, the world’s leader in civilian drones and aerial imaging technology, today announced a brand partnership with LINE FRIENDS on its first characterized drone, making drone technology more fun and accessible to a wider audience.
Featuring one of LINE FRIENDS’ most popular characters Brown, the LINE FRIENDS (BROWN) l Spark drone is an easy-to-use, fun-to-fly mini camera drone that lifts off from the palm of your hand to capture and share the special moments in your life on the go.
“DJI is excited to announce our character partnership with LINE FRIENDS, which shows DJI’s enthusiasm for making drones fun, accessible and relevant to more consumers,” said Monica Suk, Senior Communication Manager at DJI. “The DJI Spark earned its reputation as the smallest, yet powerful flying camera. It made flying a drone extremely easy, fun and more personalized.”
“Similar to other things we carry in our bags, a drone is becoming a lifestyle accessory. This special edition we are launching with LINE FRIENDS will take this concept even further and make storytelling and sharing exciting, and a part of our everyday life,” said Suk.
LINE FRIENDS is one of the fastest growing global character brands, and is a subsidiary of mobile messenger operator Line. Its merchandising business began online in 2011 from the creation of virtual stickers and emoticons on the Line mobile app. LINE FRIENDS characters have since then gained popularity and its merchandising business has now expanded to 108 stores globally.
Like the DJI Spark, LINE FRIENDS (BROWN) l Spark drone is a full-featured mini drone that fits in almost any bag, ready to launch within seconds to shoot 12-megapixel photos and 1080p videos stabilized with a two-axis mechanical gimbal. It packs an obstacle sensing system and automated flight modes into its soda can-sized body. It is the first consumer drone that users can control by hand gestures alone, successfully removing the barriers between you and your camera in the sky. Spark comes with exciting intelligent flight options that empower you to effortlessly capture and share your memorable moments. QuickShot modes will automatically create a 10-second video from your flight that is ready to share on social media, where everyone can see your special moments. Like all the latest DJI drones, Spark also comes with features like TapFly and ActiveTrack, making flight fun, easy and enjoyable for everyone.
