The selfie just went airborne thanks to Nixie, a drone you can wear on your wrist like a watch! According to the inventor, with just a simple gesture, the drone takes off, turns its camera to you to snap a video and returns to your wrist, letting you capture those moments where a simple selfie just won’t do.
Inventor Christoph Kohstall wanted to make a device for those of us who don’t have personal videographers following us around every day. So he came on the brilliant idea of merging a quad-copter with a bracelet to create Nixie. The idea is part of Intel’s Make it Wearable contest and, in all seriousness, the concept is amazing because it basically gives you the ability to record spur-of-the-moment events from an entirely new perspective with a flick of the wrist.

Sadly, you can’t get your paws on the Nixie just yet, though it did qualify for $50,000 from Intel, so we are crossing our fingers that someday soon we will all have our own personal video drone following us around all day. Yes, even to the grocery store. Check out the video to see Nixie in action.
