The Selfie Drone

We all know that selfies are self-taken digital photographs. With the arrival of the selfie-stick we have extended the length of our arms with a piece of hardware, to keep taking photos ourselves. What about drones, can they take selfies? According to the IoT Group, they can. Their fold-up flying selfie drone, called ROAM-e, uses a facial recognition software to follow the subject once it takes off. It even shoots 360-degree pictures. Thanks to this drone we will no longer suffer from selfie elbows!

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
