American woman sells $200 sweaters for drones to make them "more comfortable"
Designer Daniel Baskin launches the production of sweaters for drones. She explains this by the fact that frost harms technology: "Many drone owners know that their pets violently shiver at low temperatures, but do not dare to put them on, so as not to seem strange. Don't be afraid. If you're worried that the drone is cold, a sweater won't hurt it."

Baskin claims that heat retention depends on the model of the drone, its size and even age, but without a thick plastic coating it is difficult to maintain a high temperature: "A sweater can help a drone feel much better." This is especially true for small lightweight models, toy quadrocopters and models with a thin plastic coating.
The designer pays special attention to the choice of material. According to her, one of the best heat—retaining materials is wool, but you need to consider how often the sweater will have to be washed and whether the drone will suffer from itching. She advises choosing a combination of washable wool and cotton or acrylic.
She also recommends choosing the right size of the sweater: so that it sits neatly, but does not fit too tightly, otherwise it will interfere with the drone when moving.
Modern technology really works less time at subzero temperatures than at plus. To prevent the battery from overcooling, manufacturers or owners equip some drones with heating systems. A sweater is not suitable for this and rather acts as an ornament.
To order a sweater, you need to choose a style and specify the model of the drone. One sweater will cost the buyer $ 189.
It may seem strange that Baskin talks about drones as pets, but this is not the first time that technology is endowed with the features of a living being. You can recall at least the reaction to the videos of the engineering company Boston Dynamics, which produces robots.
