Someone invented a drone that will follow you around and take selfies

Is this the future of selfies?

Instead of a selfie stick, a startup called Zero Zero is working on an autonomous drone called the Hover Camera that follows you around everywhere, snapping photos and shooting video.

The company recently raised $25 million for the project, according to Re/code.

Sound cool?

Here’s how it works.

This is the Hover Camera.

It's thin, light, and folds in half, making it easy to take with you.

It's made of carbon fibre that's light and durable. The enclosure also keeps your hands safe from the whirring blades.

It also has sensors that track the surrounding environment so it can fly on its own using artificial intelligence.
