'Selfie Drone' Follows You Around Taking Photos All Day

Anyone who has fantasised about being followed by swarms of paparazzi can now live the dream

 

Anyone who has fantasised about being followed by swarms of paparazzi can now live the dream courtesy of a relentless camera drone which follows you everywhere.

The Lily drone is designed to take all the hard work out of selfies - by following you around filming you all day.

Users simply throw it into the air to activate, then it follows them around taking a mixture of high-definition video and stills using its onboard cameras.

It’s ‘anchored’ to a GPS bracelet, and hovers a polite distance away as it attempts to capture your best side - it takes two hours to charge, then flies for 20 minutes.

The £315 machine is designed to be a hi-tech alternative to GoPro cameras - and follows its ‘master’ at a distance of between eight and 45 feet.

Its top speed is 15mph, and it snaps away using a 12-megapixel camera.

If it ‘gets lost’, it simply powers down and flies down to the ground.

It was designed by Berkeley University robotics experts.

Creator Antoine Balaresque says, ‘Our passion for personal robotics led us to believe that there is a better way to capture and share the world around us.

Lily is available for pre-order now and will ship in February 2016.
