The machines are coming. Their takeover is inevitable. But for now, with the advent of the Lily Camera, they’re here to help you get some sick solo footy.
The Lily Camera is an auto-piloting drone and camera combo that you can self-launch. With its sensor pad strapped to your wrist, the drone can either circle you or position itself at a predetermined angle and distance as you focus on twisting, fliping, and airing over whatever’s in your path. And just to show that the company thought of everything, the sensor, which also acts as the unit's controller, comes with a waterproof case to ensure your fun doesn’t short out.
The camera can capture 1080p video at 60 frames per second, good for super slow-mo, and stills at 12 megapixels. A two-hour charge nets you 20 minutes of flight time. So the next time your camera guy flakes, the Lily Camera’s got you covered from whatever angle you choose.
