Snap, the company behind Snapchat, today announced a new mini drone called the Pixie. This name will give you an idea of how small this thing is – and how beautiful it is!
The new Pixy will be available in the US and France for 229.99 and it looks beautiful. There’s no controller or SD card, but the whole thing is being controlled via a wireless connection to your phone and a handful of pre-configured flight paths.
Pixy can float, orbit, or follow you as you move. All you have to do is press a button to select the mode and you’re done.
TechCrunch reported on Snap CEO Evan Spiegel’s remarks in the keynote address of the announcement.
“Today, we are taking the power and magic of the Snap camera – spontaneity, joy and freedom – to new heights. A new camera that matches the limitless possibilities of your imagination. Meet the world’s most friendly flying camera Pixy. It’s a pocket-sized, free-flying sidekick for adventure, big and small, “said Evan Spiegel, Snap CEO, during a keynote address at the Snap Partner Summit.
The camera attached to the Pixy is capable of capturing 2.7K video and 12-megapixel stills and weighs just 101g with a replaceable battery. Snap says that a single charge will get you between five and eight flights, which is impressive.
