I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "My arms are just too short to take a totally rad selfie." Well, why not have a drone do it? The previously announced AirSelfie2 drone aircraft is available for purchase. Never again will you need to stretch your arm to the limit to get those Insta-likes.
Let's be serious for a moment, if indeed you can be serious about a flying robot that takes selfies. This is an upgraded version of the original AirSelfie with a 12MP camera, and it supports 1080p video capture. It's about the size of a phone and has four rotors that keep it aloft for five minutes per charge.
When you need to take a selfie, you remove the drone from its little zipper case, fire up the app, and launch it. The app includes various flight modes and a soft landing protocol. It looks like a totally competent product that probably doesn't need to exist. If you really, really want a selfie drone, the AirSelfie2 is on sale via Best Buy, Amazon (still showing as out of stock), and the AirSelfie store for $199.99. Although, Best Buy only has the $250 version with a power bank.
The pocket-sized flying camera, which made its debut at CES 2018 and is a category leader, features a 12-megapixel camera for full HD photos and videos, a 400 mAh 7.4 lithium polymer battery that allows for up to five minutes of flight time and an 85° field of view. Additionally, the AirSelfie2 now has an improved 16 GB memory, this all in a device that weighs just less than three ounces and is no larger than the average smartphone.
“When it comes to capturing life’s important moments on pictures or video, people don’t want to have limitations. With the AirSelfie2, anyone with a smartphone can get the shot they want with a flying camera that weighs next to nothing and can be carried around in your pocket,”said Stefano Cabella, CEO of AirSelfie Holdings Ltd. “We want to surprise AirSelfie2 users with continuous novelties: each automatic software update means exciting new features and experiences for the consumer without the need to wait for a new version of the device.”
Featuring an anodized aluminum casing that’s durable enough to withstand modern life, the AirSelfie2 measures just 3.8” x 2.8” x 0.5”. And with its four turbo brushless fans, it has a range of over 60 feet. AirSelfie2 connects wirelessly to iOS and Android devices, so users can share their shots or upload them to social media sites in seconds. The AirSelfie2 is available in four colors - silver, black, gold and rose gold and retails starting from $199.95.
With this combination of portability, durability and technology, it’s no surprise that the AirSelfie2 recently won the prestigious Red Dot Design Award. The AirSelfie2 received the top distinction in the “Red Dot: Best of the Best” competition, standing out among more than 6,300 other products due to its excellent design, performance, and innovative symbiosis of aesthetics and function. The device was also named to GadgetMatch’s “Best of CES 2018” list and has been nominated for the German Design Award. AirSelfie also recently closed a new round of capital, facilitated by Klecha & Co., which will allow for continuous outstanding innovation in product and design.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth and interest in our products since the launch of the AirSelfie1 last year. With the AirSelfie2, we’re redefining what consumers should expect from a flying camera,“ said Chris Jungfleisch, CMO of AirSelfie.
