Be aware - The video shows a quadcopter taking off from a hand. That is all.  Don't let hype fill in the blanks.  Their price/power/capabilites claims are not backed-up by what information they have published. Its lack of sensors is another glaring issue.

curious_device, it's all speculation at this point, but many of your fellow engineers disagree as shown by their comments below. According to your qualifications for what is and isn't hype, several well-known products that clearly exist from large, reputable companies that also clearly exist are all hype, too.

"According to your qualifications for what is and isn't hype, several well-known products that clearly exist from large, reputable companies that also clearly exist are all hype, too."

That's self contradictory.  Well-known products have the distinction of being products. They are in customer's hands.

Being a journalist, I'm sure they would be happy to give you a demo!

According to Always Innovating's website there are 14 sensors packed onboard their MeCam nano-drone and is available for licensing. It also has a recommended MSRP of $99 if you can believe the 'hype'.

It's been over a year. They managed to add sensors to their "spec".
