Palm-sized drone takes pictures and video

Pixy Lifestyle Still 4

I don’t usually do product stuff here, but this is pretty amazing. It wasn’t that long ago that drones cost thousands of dollars and were the size of your microwave. Snap is launching something called Pixy, a palm-sized yellow drone that will hover near and/or follow you, taking photos or video. When you are done, you put your hand underneath it and the drone lands. It sends the photos and video to your phone, where they are stored (of course) in your Snapchat. And it’s $230. According to Snap, it captures 2.7k videos and 12MP photos, and it weighs only 101g, with a replaceable battery that lasts for five to eight flights.
