Lily is an HD Camera Drone That Follows You

Drones have emerged rapidly over the past years as a hobby in the market. Lily stands out among its competitors as a camera drone that follows the users to shoot high-quality videos and pictures. Simply turn on the camera drone and toss it up in the air, it will fly around you and record your active moments just like a personal photographer. Lily features a modern design with smiling eyes partially inspired by “WALL-E.”

How does Lily work?

Lily has two components—a self-flying drone, and a small round tracker that you can store in a pocket or wear on the wrist. Taking advantage of artificial intelligence, GPS, visual processing technologies, the drone will keep constant communication with the tracker and fly around it once they remotely connect.
