Once the mode is chosen, it is not necessary to command it in any way, since it is autonomous. The drone will float in place and take pictures of the user(s) as it moves through the air. The product is promoted as a kind of “photo assistant”.

Pixy shoots 2.7K video at 30 frames per second and takes photos at 12 MP resolution. It weighs just 101 grams and fits in a pocket. Besides, the battery offers a range of 5 to 8 hours of flight; and charges to 80% in just 20 minutes.

It offers the possibility of transferring images and videos wirelessly to the cell phone so that the content can be uploaded immediately to the social network. It is that the product was born to contribute, precisely, to generate more content on Snapchat.

The gadget is able to detect gestures and act accordingly. If the user extends the palm of the hand, the equipment will land there and turn off.

“Everything you need to capture the moment from a new perspective is right in the palm of your hand. At the touch of a button, Pixy flies in four preset flight paths. It can hover, orbit, and follow wherever it takes you, without a controller or any setup. And Pixy finds her home in your hand, landing softly at the end of the flight,” the official statement read.

It also offers editing options to use before sharing the content. With a few taps, you can automatically crop to portrait format and apply editing filters, such as Hyperspeed, Bounce, Orbit 3D and Jump Cut. Then it is possible to share on Snapchat and other platforms as well.

While they were all the rage at the time, interest faded over time. Now they launched this new gadget that is already making people talk.

Goalfor its part, is working on the development of augmented reality glasses under the code name “Project Nazare”. This is how they refer to this initiative within the company.
