Remove from your wrist and fold out. Small propellers begin to buzz.

Look, Ma, No Hands! The Wearable Cam Drone

Posted: Sep 23, 2015 10:35 am EDT

(Tina Sjogren) Winner of Intel's “Make it Wearable” global competition for innovative concepts is a very cool idea, no doubt.

 

We've seen drones filming adventurers before, latest Antony Jinman when he solo-skied to the South Pole traced by a Parrot-drone.

 

The cool part about Nixie is that it's wearable.

 

The drone is small and the body soft enough to wrap around your wrist and be worn like a watch.

 

Bring it to the rock wall and toss it on a particular move. The idea is that the cam flies off, keeps track of you and shoots a video, then boomerangs back.

 

This would be useful for any sports where filming your style could be helpful not just to show off but also to improve your moves.

 

The watch-drone was displayed in a booth on the top floor at the IDF conference. It looked simple enough, but we didn't get to see it in operational state.

 

The Nixie team got $500 000 from Intel to make it real.
