Nixie is a wearable, autonomous drone that takes selfies


A selfie drone on your wrist sounds too good to be true, but Nixie has pulled it off.

It’s a tiny bracelet you wear and can take off at any point, throw into the air and it takes a selfie automatically for you. At Intel’s CES keynote, Nixie showed off it’s little autonomous drone and successfully took a snap.


A live demo on stage showed it really is as easy as throwing it in front of you, then it moves slightly further away, takes a photo and comes right back.

Nixie was announced back in September, but it was cool to see it shown off in a live demo. You can’t actually buy one yet; the company is working on making the technology better before it puts them on sale.
