Imagine sitting on your surfboard waiting for the next set to roll in as a drones floats nearby. As the first wave approaches, you toss the drone into the air and start paddling. Now you’re up on the wave and the drone is carefully capturing you from the side as you carve up the face, or maybe it’s filming you from the front while you tuck into a barrel. This is all now possible with Lily—a type of next-generation GoPro that autonomously films you from afar. Unlike other quadcopters that perform similar tasks, Lily is activated by simply throwing it into the air and can even land safely in the palm of your hand. It’s currently available for pre-order for $499.
