The CEO of Lily Camera, Antonio Balaresque, has been in the news of late with the launch of this drone camera. While it may pass for one of the typical drones with flight and motion capture features (like DJI, meant for custom application), Lily is built to cater the domestic market.

Lily cam is designed to stay focused on the subject and follow the subject’s movements. Imagine that you’re a Victorian aristocrat and you have a lackey who holds the umbrella for you. Lily is that efficient. It comes with 20 minutes of flight time, and will feature a 60 FPS, 1080p camera as the primary capture device. An additional 120 FPS, 720p camera for alternative purposes is also going to be installed.
All you have to do is wear the tracker on yourself, train Lily to follow your movements based on the GPS tracker, and let the magical gadget do its thing. Balaresque has promised that the final product will have the AI to learn your face, and keep it in focus as well.
Mashable notes that the 3D-printed prototype currently out there is capable of delivering its promises, but not to a full-blown scale yet. Lily, once it’s properly released, will be like your personal selfie photographer, only with flying skills and incredible footage.
An array of sensors that include a gyroscope, a magnetometer, and an accelerometer will give the final product the required control and finesse.
You can pre-order it at $499 on the official website if you’re interested, or you can wait for the $899 final product line.
