As if most of us aren’t narcissistic enough, Aussie tech company IoT Group, wanted to turn it up a notch by creating a flying selfie stick. Considering the selfie obsessed society we live in, I will bet you anything that there will be selfie sticks flying over your head in no time, just trying to capture the perfect picture.
The selfie stick is called ROAM-e, and is available for pre-sale today (March 31st).
The ROAM-e is programmed using facial recognition technology to follow the user at a distance of up to 25 meters (82 feet). It takes photos, 360-degree panoramas or stream live video for up to 20 minutes of flight time. I know what you’re thinking thinking: why not just get a camera drone? Well, the ROAM-e features a 5 Megapixel CMOS sensor and a Quad Core ARM Cortex A7 Processor, much better than a drone.
The ROAM-e’s rotors can also be collapsed and folded so the device is basically pocket-size (also something you can’t get with a drone).
The device will cost $267.
