Lily flies itself to capture your adventures

While reading posts on my favorite BBS, I found a post by a user named Android8675.

In this post was the cool intro video I have linked below via YouTube.

I couldn't believe what I was seeing! A drone that not only flies itself, but takes beautiful in focus footage of the person wearing the "homing beacon". (For want of whatever Lily calls it)

This thing is amazing. Here is the YouTube video I just mentioned:

Here is what the Lily team have to say about themselves:

"Lily started in September 2013 in the basement of a UC Berkeley robotics lab, where Henry and Antoine built the first prototype using a Raspberry Pi and an Arduino.

In Spring of 2014, leading investors Shana Fisher and SV Angel supported the Lily vision and showed them the yellow brick road. Along the way, Robb gave Lily a heart, Rowland gave Lily courage, and Nghia gave Lily a brain.

Our mission is to release human creativity by inventing tools that allow for effortless expression. We believe that great products are built with a clear purpose." -

Right now Lily is not available, but it will be available starting in May of 2016, and you can pre-order now via

Well that's about it. Before I go, here is some great artwork shots thanks to
