Yep, it’s a real thing. Well, almost. It’s now accepting your crowdfunding dollars on Kickstarter—and should it come to fruition, it’ll be shipping in January. (All questionable yet strangely desirable things take time.)
We know you’ve got questions, and we’ll field those right now. Shoot.
So, basically a selfie drone. What’s this thing look like?
It sort of looks like a really small window fan. It’s a palm-sized aluminum device with four small motors, and it slides right out the back of your phone case. It’s all pretty convenient.
How might I go about using it?
You’ll remove it from the case and launch it using the app. You can set it up to be like a simple remote or like a joystick, but basically your phone controls the thing.
And when it’s just the right distance from me and my twelve friends who would’ve otherwise struggled to fit in the shot?
It’ll hover there, just so, as you take all of the photographs you desire. If you’ve got wifi, they’ll all be sent immediately to your phone, where you can post them on Instagram or send them to your aunt Karen.
And aerial selfies?
Totally in the realm of possibility.
Will this incite as much anger and unrest as the selfie stick?
Time will tell. Time will tell.
