Wears like a watch.
Remove from your wrist and fold out. Small propellers begin to buzz.
Look, Ma, No Hands! Toss, record and return.
Look, Ma, No Hands! The Wearable Cam Drone

(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.
