Just a day or so back, a new kind of a drone that the makers call ‘Lily’ took the world by storm. Needless to say, RC Drone Arena was one of the many publications that was swept away by the concept.
Lily is already on pre-order for $499 (plus shipping), but it appears as the makers have quite a bit to do before the drone is fit for mass production. For the record, the folks at Lily are promising shipments in February 2016, which is 9 months from now. It appears as though they might need all of the time to work on the product which doesn’t really work as advertised… at least not for now.
The Guardian had a little hands on session with the drone that follows you, and the outcome wasn’t particularly encouraging as you can see from the video. I personally LOVE the concept that Lily works on, and truly hope the deadline is met. Drones are the future!
