We thought we were asking a lot when we wished for more stylish wearables. But when that happened, we thought we鈥檇 start asking for more. Like, what about a wearable drone? Not just a wearable drone, but one that takes off with a flick of your wrist. And takes your selfies for you.

Yep. That鈥檚 in development now.

We can鈥檛 make this stuff up, people. Inventor Christoph Kohstall is the captain of a team competing to win Intel鈥檚 Make It Wearable challenge,聽and this is their pretty awesome submission 鈥 Nixie, a聽quadcopter聽that doubles as a wristband.

It鈥檚 not the first wearable camera, but it may be the first that can fly. It鈥檚 gesture controlled, so your wrist movement is what signals it to take off. Nixie can fly roughly 20 feet high. It senses where you are,聽and then takes an aerial photo of you. After that, it flies back toward you. You catch it in mid-air and snap it back onto your wrist until your next photo op.

Using this little gadget, you can get yourself and your surroundings in a photo without holding a tripod at arm鈥檚 length or gambling with asking a random passerby to snap the pic. We can see it being especially handy for climbers and runners, who can鈥檛 stop what they鈥檙e doing to capture the moment.聽It would also be great for solo travelers or for getting a group of friends in one shot.

Nixie is聽more portable than any drone we鈥檝e seen and a lot less awkward than the selfie hat. The winner of the Make It Wearable challenge will be announced at the聽finale event on November 3, 2014. Whatever the results, we hope Nixie聽makes it to market!

Would a wearable drone change the way you take photos?
