This little drone aims to replace your selfie stick

AEE Aviation Technology announced the AEE SELFLY, a smartphone case with an embedded drone, the first device of its kind and first of its class.

AEE SELFLY aims to provide smartphone users everywhere the ability to capture selfie pictures at a whole new level of quality and precision, for nearly any event, from any location, and from heights and distances never before possible.

AEE will be exhibiting AEE SELFLY along with its entire family of drones/UAV and camera innovations this week at CES.

AEE chief marketing officer Mike Kahn says, “More photographs are being taken now on smartphones than ever before because the best camera is the one you can always have with you.

“With a touch of a button, AEE SELFLY springs to life and flies a mission to capture your selfies from high above, from tight spaces or from a distance, as never possible before.”

“It gives the user options and angles beyond the arm's length of a selfie stick and is much more convenient than a drone, as a case to your smartphone, AEE SELFLY will always be with you to capture amazing selfies."

Utilising high-end stabilisation technology, AEE SELFLY snaps onto most all standard size 4 to 6-inch smartphones.

Its drone wings enable the device to fly itself at the user's command, delivering distant, tight angle or higher altitude photo selfies or videos.

As it hovers in the air, AEE SELFLY waits for commands from an easy-to-use and free smartphone app to capture shots from above.

Equipped with 1080P, full high-definition video capability, the AEE SELFLY has a flight time of four minutes with an approximate recharge time of 30 minutes and is compatible with both Apple iOS and Android devices.

AEE SELFLY will ship during the first calendar quarter of 2018 and will be available through Amazon, at AEEUSA.com, and other consumer electronics outlets.
