Have you ever wished you had a personal camera following you around taking video? Well you're in luck, you stupid narcissist! There's a new flying robot that does exactly that. It's got four rotors, and a video camera, and two blue eyes that make it look like it whirled straight out of a Japanese cartoon.
All you have to do is toss it in the air like an awkward baby bird and it will zip around you taking video. Despite its friendly face, it doesn't imprint on you like a baby duck. It just follows a sizable tracking device you keep on your body. Unfortunately, it can only fly for 20 minutes before it runs out of batteries and then you're left kayaking around with a big dead robot in your backpack.
You can pre-order it now for around $500, which feels like a lot of money to shell out to discover nothing you do is worth recording on video, but the price tag goes up to $1000 when pre-sales are over.
(There's no word on whether or not they have plans to make a male version of the robot so they can mate like the little flying saucers in *Batteries Not Included.)
