Drones. That word certainly has a bad connotation, bringing to mind all manner of death and destruction via human-controlled bots. However, the idea of a drone is much more than a mindless killing machine. Amazon, for instance, hopes to begin employing them soon for same-day, and even same-hour, delivery of purchased goods. Some eateries have begun using them instead of waiters. In short, they can and will have many uses in the years to come. But what about a drone that follows us around and, when not in use, wraps around our wrist like an armband? Sigh. We’ll soon have that as well.
Introducing Nixie, the cutest lil drone you ever did see. This teensy weensy lil helicopter flies around and follows you like a good little drone puppy and, as stated above, wraps around your wrist when not in use. It’s the best of both worlds! Does it do anything besides fly around and follow along like a puppy dog? Yes! Thanks for asking. It also shoots video, giving you a rare insight into what you look like via an aerial view. Finally, you’ll be able to tell if you really have a bald spot or not. It’ll also be good for aerial shots in general.
Nixie, that gosh-darned cutie, isn’t out yet. As a matter of fact, it is still being worked up feverishly by a group of creators. If you head on over to their website, you can sign up for a mailing list that will keep you abreast of all wristband/drone happenings. Or, of course, you could always just keep checking this site. That also works.
