Roam-e Flying Selfie Drone Cam

Boring boring boring selfies? Never again with Roam-e Flying Selfie drone and its 1080p constant focus on you, You, YOU!


(Roam-e and the new drone selfies)

Retailing at $399 (around 300) online and AU$499 in Australia , the Roam-e Flying Selfie features a 1080p camera and uses facial recognition technology to follow its owner around and is capable of avoiding objects. The drone has a 20 minute battery life and takes about 2 hours to fully charge.

You can also do live streaming and the Roam-e is capable of taking 360-degree pictures

Did science fiction authors have our backs on predicting this idea? You bet they did! Herewith sf author Karen Traviss a decade ago in her novel City of Pearl:

He set his camera to follow him, and it hovered behind him like a large tame bee.

"Tight mid-shot and pull out on but behind me," he told it. He checked the shot on his handheld screen and moved a few meters to the right. That was better.
