australian company IoT group is looking to replace those pesky selfie sticks with a more imaginative and futuristic approach by using a person mini-drone they are calling ‘ROAM-e’. basically, it can be programmed using facial recognition technology to follow a user at a distance of up to 25 meters and take photos, 360 degree panoramas or stream live video.

the drone’s rotors can be collapsed and folded to a size no bigger than 600 milliliter water bottle. the frameless body features a five megapixel CMOS sensor and a quad core ARM ‘cortex A7’ microprocessor. it includes fast charging battery (two hours) that is swappable and will keep the drone in the air for up to 20 minutes. by simply tethering the IoT group ‘ROAM-e’ to a smartphone, the personal drone can digital record any situation hands-free.
