That's pretty cool. Would be nice to have a little more endurance but still it's pretty cool to me.

If they made a faster version (which would be pretty difficult I'd think) imagine the videos you could get of race tracks and such. As it stands, it might be cool for sports players to get some very good video of how they're playing.

I wonder how it handles obstructions while trying to "follow" the wrist tracker wearer and I think any group activity with more than one could get more interesting.

I was wondering that as well, there's got to be some sort of airspace deconfliction and obstacle avoidance if they expect this to go mainstream. Who knows what's under the hood already, but hopefully the guys have thought of this.

Hi folks,

New type of drone: http://www.wimp.com/drone-follow/

I wonder if it might be able to keep up if you were in freefall. Whole new perspective on cameras.

Really nice, interesting technology - but I find it a bit dispiriting that people don't seem to be able to experience anything now without the validation of filming it or being filmed doing it.

I went to a jazz gig recently where some audience members were watching most of the performance through their phones while recording, and even reviewing the playback and uploading it to Facebook before each number had even finished!

I agree with that. We used to take pictures of things for the sake of showing the things. "Look at how magnificent the Venus de Milo is!"

Now we just seem to take pictures of ourselves, with the things as an afterthought in the background. "Look at me standing in front of the Venus de Milo!"

With all our video gizmos, we've become a narcissistic society...

Cool video has been killing people for a long time....

Damn!
I missed a golden opportunity!>:(
This car with a nimrod in the passenger seat passed me, then swung over to the right lane.
If I had seen what was coming, I could have moved left, and grabbed the selfie-stick with my left hand.>:(
Since my helmet-cam was running, it would have made a GREAT Youtube video!B|

This camera is, to say at least, amazing...
It opens a door to creating otherwise impossible videos.

To have a programmable camera following a moving object on predetermined height and distance?
For a thousand bucks? Wow!
I hope they will manage to pull it off. Application is endless.

Hi ryoder,

Strand's mother, Patsy Strand, said that Knudson was "at least 25 percent at fault," in the crash, having been bicycling at the foot of a hill, in the lane, rather than on the shoulder at the time of the crash.



In Oregon you can ride in the road; you're riding a vehicle.

We have had a rash of bike/auto accidents here in the Portland-area the last few weeks; including one fatality.

In all of North America, as far as I know, cyclists can ride in the lane. In fact, it's often the recommended place when there isn't a wide enough shoulder to allow a vehicle to safely pass to take the whole lane to make sure drivers don't try to squeeze by you.

Selfie-absorbed driver kills triathlete: http://www.wday.com/...ete-near-finley-lastCrazy


Shouldn't that be another thread on people making Facebook selfies and consequences to mental "health"?

Lily Camera - that's wonderful.
In two years we'll see fantastic, unseen ever, skydiving/basejumping footage - Lily Camera based on.
Especially educational
