Ever get the feeling you’re being followed, and photographed? Don’t worry, it’s probably just your personal drone hovering overhead. US manufacturers Lily have developed a device that you can literally toss into the air and leave it to follow your every move.
To stick close, the drone relies on a small GPS tracker that you carry in your pocket or on your wrist. And to make sure of the best angles, it employs vision technology to recognise its owner and frame them accurately in shot.
While it’s more independent than other consumer drones, right now the Lily device doesn’t yet have the ability to avoid obstacles such as trees, power lines, or tall people. So for now it only really works in wide open spaces. At least that means it can’t follow you into the bathroom.
