Lily Camera Drone Will Follow You Everywhere
Lily Camera drone feature a 1080p, 60 FPS camera and another 720p, 120 FPS camera, both of which can be trained on you. The flyer will use its built-in GPS to stay fixed on a little Lily tracking device worn on your wrist or in your pocket.
According to Lily Camera CEO Antonie Balaresque, learn your face. The final Lily will have a computer vision system that will recognize your face and then work to always keep you in the frame.
“You throw this in the air, go about your business and at the end, you’ll have a high-quality video,” said the camera’s co-founder Henry Bradlow.
Instead of a big radio controller or even tablet-based app to control flight, Lily Camera will fly itself, following and capture the best moments. Balaresque noted that the pocket GPS will tell Lily Camera when you might be jumping or falling, for example; a quad of buttons makes the device either fly closer to or further away from you, or lets it circle to your left or right — while always keeping you in frame.
It could be right at home on the shelves of Best Buy, alongside other camera equipment. “Fixed point cameras are limited by skills of the photographer,” Balaresque said. “A flying camera takes it to another level — much better footage.”
The final version of the Lily Cam will be waterproof and even throw-proof; throw it into a lake and let it take off from the water, or hoist it into the air and let it stabilize itself.
Lily Camera will sell for $899 at retail, but the company is offering a steep discount for those who order early: $499.
