ZeroZero Robotics, the makers of the Hover Camera Passport selfie drone which followed around subjects using facial and body recognition, is back with a sequel. The Hover 2 camera is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and ZeroZero says it’s four times more powerful than its predecessor. The drone’s body features most of the same design of the original, but the Hover 2 now comes with an encasing that can be replaced with a lighter weight protector that improves flight time, control range, and aerodynamics. The Hover 2 includes a feature called Optical Radar, which is a swiveling stereo sensor that offers 360-degree depth perception and obstacle avoidance. Paired with the new housing and the remote, it has 23 minutes of flight time with a 3 mile control range.

Yes, the selfie sticks are here to stay — no matter the fact that many people view them as a symbol of shallow narcissism and the oversharing culture, make fun of their users, and that they have been banned from some public spaces due to the potential dangers they pose if swung around. In fact, they are evolving into something that can actually be even more dangerous, if not also more ridiculous to watch if it becomes a fad. Meet ROAM-e – a drone designed specifically for selfies. This little fellow's job is to always hover around you, either to take the perfect photo or to live stream the footage. The device employs facial recognition technologies to keep its eye on you and will, at default, not stray further than 80 feet (25 meters); it also has a Follow Me mode, which will keep it following you at a constant distance of 10 feet (3 meters). To round its functions off, there's a panoramic mode, which has the drone spin around and deliver a 360-degree shot. ROAM-e … [Read more...] about Selfie sticks are so 2015 — selfie drones are in!
