The digital photo-sharing + instant messaging app Snapchat is hugely popular. According to its parent company Snap, the smart-phone app has more than 330 million active daily users. Snap just unveiled an automated flying selfie drone called Pixy. The $230 palm-sized gadget lifts-off, takes a shareable photo or video of you, then lands by itself.

A selfie is a photo or video you take of yourself — that can be shared digitally using social media apps on mobile phones, tablets, and desktop or laptop personal computers.

— about —

Your friendly flying camera from Snap is pocket-sized + free flying. Pixy brings magic to every moment — capturing your videos and photos from new heights. No controllers or complex set-up means it’s ready to fly at a moment’s notice. With the simple tap of a button Pixy floats, orbits, and follows wherever you lead. And Pixy will come back to you, landing gently right in the palm of your hand.

You can take your editing studio on-the-go. Tap into the Snapchat eco-system to edit and share your Pixy photos + videos — anytime from anywhere. Use your favorite Snap tools + sounds — or apply lenses before sharing to Snapchat Stories, Spotlight, or any platform.
