Automation is becoming a common feature amongst newer drones. Lily, on the other hand, well — she’s just a stalker, plain and simple.

“In the past few months, we’ve seen a slew of new drones that feature some type of automation. First there was the Ares Drone, which lets users draw flight paths and camera moves on an iPad, moves which the drone then faithfully completes using advanced GPS technology. Then there’s the 3DR Solo, which offers complex camera maneuvers like cable-cam flyovers at the push of a button. These drones are still manually-piloted devices for the most part in that there’s still some semblance of control. All that is required for users to fly Lily, on the other hand, is a hearty toss into the air. I shit you not. It’s a throw-and-go drone.”
Lily is expected to begin shipping in early 2016 for a street price of $1000, but you can pre-order it now from the Lily website for $499.
