This phone case is also a drone designed to take selfies

If you can hide your arm or selfie stick in a selfie, good for you.

For those who can’t, there’s a drone for that.

The Airselfie is a tiny drone that’s housed in a phone case, and it lets you take selfies or group shots from further away than you could with your arms or a selfie stick.

Airselfie already went through its Kickstarter campaign, where it amassed more than AUD$706,255, and the company behind the tiny selfie-taking drone is now taking pre-orders

The Airselfie costs $345, and it will be ready for shipping in May this year.

This is the Airselfie.

It's a tiny drone that fits inside a phone case.


And it has a built-in 5-megapixel camera.


The idea is that Airselfie lets you take selfies from further away than you could with your hand or a selfie stick, so that you can get more of the scenery behind you.


And it will let you get better group photos, too.

It can lift off straight from your hand.

You can control it with virtual joysticks in the Airselfie app. The Airselfie app has three flight modes with varying degrees of control for the drone itself.


After the Airselfie takes a photo, the photo is stored in the Airselfie's 4GB storage, or you can transfer it to your phone over the WiFi connection between your phone and the Airselfie.


The Airselfie drone is made of aluminium, and it's surprisingly light at only 52 grams (1.8 ounces).


The battery lasts about three minutes, but it only takes 30 minutes to charge either with a microUSB cable, or with the battery that's built into the optional power bank case.


Airselfie completed its Kickstarter campaign, but you can pre-order it now.


You can pre-order the Airselfie for AUD$345 here, and it will be delivered in May, according to Airselfie's website.

The Airselfie fits the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus, 6, 6 Plus, Google Pixel, and Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge.
