Meet Nixie, a wearable camera that flies off your wrist and turns into a remote-controlled quadcopter. It’s the bizarre-yet-appealing wearable camera drone nobody asked for… and now we kind of want it. If sticking your arm out to capture photos makes you feel like a lo-tech peasant, you’re probably Nixie’s target demographic. All of that seems to be a long way off still; they’re going to have to make the Nixie extremely consistent to make it worthwhile. After all, getting one of those GoPro stick mounts to take a farther-away shot might not be as convenient of simply flinging a camera off your wrist, but it’s also a lot less complicated. In a crowded area, I’d guess it’d be hard for the Nixie to tell which person it was meant to fly back towards. The Nixie team has a lot of work to do, but if they can polish their prototype, this is a weird wearable worth watching.
