AirSelfie: The First Pocket-Sized Flying Camera Takes Off

- 7 years ago

The AirSelfie camera is made up from four propellers and a 5-megapixel video camera

The device is smaller than a smartphone and promises vertical flight of [up to] an impressive 66 feet. The pocket-sized flying-selfie-camera will be available from May, with pre-order underway following a highly successful Kickstarter campaign. The device connects to most popular smartphones, can fly vertically up to 66 feet and allows users to take aerial selfies of themselves and their friends with the help of an in-built Wi-Fi system and takes still images as well as video.

The main intent for this new camera [as the name suggests], is to allow users to take aerial selfies of themselves and their friends. It will connect to all of the most popular smartphones, including iPhone [6, 6s, 7 and 7 Plus], Huawei P9, Google Pixel and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge. It includes self-generated WiFi and comes equipped with a rechargeable battery through a cell phone case, as well as the option to purchase an external power bank.

It comes complete with self-generated WiFi and a rechargeable battery. There’s also the option to buy an external power bank.

The AirSelfie has a ‘vibration-absorber system’ and ‘in-flight stability systems’ which promises to guarantee stable, clear, flowing images.

There are two available packages: AirSelfie + phone cover [£220] or AirSelfie and powerbank version [£229].
