Gadget of the Week – Nixie
Published on February 12, 2015
If your selfies weren't impressive enough before, this new wearable drone from Nixie can take it to the next level. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, drone technology has been integrated into the latest in wearable technology. Your harmless drone wristband can, at your command, transform into a quadcopter and take flight, enabling your camera to take photos and videos from the air.
Nixie finds its way using motion prediction technology and sensors, according to Wired. It additionally comes with 360-degree panorama and follow modes, which allow Nixie to trail behind you in the air.
While this device is still in prototype, it did recently win Intel's "Make it Wearable" contest (which came with a nice $500,000 prize), so we will definitely be looking for this device commercially before long.
