the ‘nixie’ quadcopter drone by fly nixie, is the first wearable camera as it fits around your wrist and is one of the finalists for intel’s make it wearable challenge. it has a tiny, rotating polaroid in its middle body that captures active pictures of the user from unique angles and positions. when not in use, the gadget acts similarly to a bracelet by fixing around you wrist so that it is safe and easily accessible to the wearer. when transforming for operation, the straps divide and unfold to create a quadcopter that flies, takes photos and videos, then comes back to you.  the ‘nixie’ is still in development but is a finalist for the intel competition which aims to challenge designers to change the future of wearable technology.
