Dynamic Selfies Coming Soon?

It’s a common known fact that people love to document their passions. That passion could be painting or car engines; or even just your new makeup or tech gadget. With documenting comes sharing, which our generation is very eager to do. Now with rising technologies and the explosion of social media, it has become an almost integral part of our day to document or ‘blog’ about ourselves.

With Instagram, people are able to share things they’ve found, new ideas as well as new looks through images. Combined with Facebook, it’s a constant stream of what people are up to. So what is the next big thing for our ‘selfie’ focused generation? Maybe Hovercams?

As absurd as that sounds it’s close to becoming a thing. Drone technology is on the rise, which will eventually lead to personal drone. It also isn’t that big of a step from having phones in our pockets 24/7, which we use to take pics and upload onto social media sites. Having one that can hover outside of your arm span to take the perfect selfie. Developers are working on the ‘Nixie’, a quadcopter camera drone — currently in the prototype phase — that’s designed to be flexible and lightweight enough to wrap around your wrist. When a selfie opportunity arises the Nixie detaches, flies to a likely spot, hovers and takes a picture.

Very similar to sic fi stories, but it looks promising. The idea was also used in the popular book series, ‘Uglies’ by Scott Westerfeld. In the 4th book, everyone has their own hover cam and news feed to post about themselves or their interests, when they want. The cams came in different sizes, heavy-duty large drones or ‘swarms’ of mini drones that constantly record their owner’s lives. This would be a step up from the selfie shots and could lead to other uses such as an upgrade to body cams worn by police.
It will be interesting to see the development of these devices.
