Lily Camera Drone

Lily insists this is a camera and not a drone, but either way, the Lily Camera won a CES 2016 Innovation Award. Once you throw the 1.3kg drone into the air, it'll take start recording in 1080p60. It's even waterproof.

Lily can fly 50 feet up and will automatically follow you anywhere it can go. Using the wrist worn controller you can set it to follow, lead, circle, go up and more, so you get the best shots all while it does the work of following you.

The startup pulled in a whopping $34 million in pre-orders by the end of 2015, with 60,000 units already sold. The Lily Camera Drone will be on sale in February for $800.
