Nixie, a wearable drone for extreme selfies

Nixie Concept

Intel is holding a competition to encourage new wearable technology ideas, and the Nixie is one of the finalists.

It’s still in development and the team captain Christoph Kohstall eventually wants you to be able to send the the Nixie flying with a gesture. It would recognize where you’re standing, snap a picture, then return to the wrist.

From the project website:

Nixie is a tiny wearable camera on a wrist band. The wrist straps unfold to create a quadcopter that flies, takes photos or video, then comes back to you. 

Judging by this video, the project has to be kept under tight control! ;-)
