Drone Camera That Automatically Follows You Around

May 14, 2015

The Lily is a waterproof autonomous quadrocopter with a face that automatically follows you around by detecting a tracker worn on your body (previously: this one from 2014). It has a 20-minute battery life, shoots 1080p video at 60FPS, 720p slow motion at 120FPS, and has a variety of different follow modes. Also, you literally just throw it in the air to start recording. That was weird to watch in the video because I kept hoping to see a crash and burn that never happened. Still, is it smart enough to avoid trees? What about bears? You can preorder a Lily now for $499 (shipping February 2016), otherwise the price goes up to $1,000. Are you going to get one? Cool, I'll just borrow yours. "What are you going to use it for?" Does it matter? "It's going to be sexual, isn't it?" What? Nooooooo. "Then what is it?" Fine, sex on the top of Mount Everest.

Keep going for a worthwhile video if you're interested.

Thanks to everyone who sent this, sorry it took me so long to get it up (I tell my girlfriend that all the time).

    This is pretty cool, especially for people who take all the pictures and then are never 'in' any of the pictures. Now singles can have cool shots of them doing stuff. And porn because it's only a matter of time though I think GW posted a film like that, nauseating, small people sexing it up on landscapes.

    Cool! I will show this to someone with lots of disposable income.

    DISCLAIMER: Do not use on windy days!

    (coincidentally, also not to be used on "Wendy Daze", that chick I went to high school with.)

    Pretty cool. Is it aware of it's surroundings, though? I could see this thing just flying right into a tree while in "lead" mode.
    ...after looking at the website, it says that it does NOT have obstacle avoidance, but you can push a button on the tracker to make it stop it's flight path.

    Great! So while you are being careful to preserve your own life, you have to look after this thing too. Sounds to me like AI is being developed to rely on humans....Just like the Matrix!!!

    I can't wait to use this in a desert

    There you go!
