A flying Camera? Sounds impossible? Well, think again because Nixie here will change your mind. Nixie is a wearable camera on a wrist band. It is very tiny in size which makes it feasible to wear on the wrist. The surprise factor in Nixie is that its wrist straps unfolds and creates a quadcopter which then flies and takes pictures and videos and comes back to you when the work is done.

Nixie is a perfect device for selfie addicts as they can now take as many selfies they want from as many angles they want and with as many people they want. Forget about selfie sticks as Nixie with its wearable drone will do a much better job for you. The product is currently under development.
Nixie initially started off as a flying pair of glasses instead of the flying drone wristband that it is now. Christoph Kohstall, a PhD in experimental physics and Postdoctoral research at Stanford is the inventor and team lead at Nixie. The Nixie team consists of seven members including Christoph.
The shooters have to interrupt the moment and control the required manual manipulations when they’re taking photos from traditional cameras but Nixie puts the shooter in centre and front in your videos and photos without even requiring your attention or hands. It lets you enjoy the moment rather than worrying about capturing it. With Nixie, you can shoot movies, panoramas and selfies as it will come with preset mode for any on the go situation.
Nixie is also one of the ten finalists in Intel’s “Make it wearable” competition. Every finalist has received $50,000 and guidance from Intel to see through it. The winner of the competition will receive a grand prize of $500,000 in November this year.
The developers of the product want it to be intuitive, which means more the power you put into its release, the father the device will go.
If Nixie ends up wining Intel’s “Make it wearable” competition, the product can be expected to release within one year with a price tag of less than $1,000.
