Lily drone: flying selfie camera follows you around as you ski or run

Like a third-person Go Pro, the Lily Camera is meant for filming those that need their hands for doing extreme sport

A new drone camera has been released that allows users to simply throw it in the air and have it follow them around.

The drone is designed to allow people to be filmed without having someone do it for them. It looks to be positioned towards the same people who use Go Pros, mounting them to their head to film snowboarding and other extreme sports, but allows for them to feature in the video themselves.

To use the drone, users simply turn it on and throw it up into the air. From there, it will follow a special transmitter or go in pre-programmed routes.

The drone is waterproof and small, only weighing 2.8 lbs.

While it’s flying, users can choose where to send the drone — either following or leading ahead of people, or circling around them. Then those photos and videos can be exported and viewed after the fact.

The drone has a camera that can take 1080p video, or 120 frames per second slomo films at 820p. It also takes 12 megapixel stills.

The drone can be pre-ordered now for $599, plus $20 shipping. But they won’t be delivered until February 2016.
