These days, wearable tech seems to be the ultimate convenience. A prevalent trend would be the smart watches, which condense your smart phone into a highly advanced wearable watch. The demand is so high that Intel is holding a “Make It Wearable” contest. The purpose of the competition is to create a unique wearable tech to improve daily living. Of the contestants is Nixie, a flying wearable camera quadcopter.
Nixie’s goal is to capture your treasured moments from a different perspective and in a way you couldn’t do it before. In essence, these are the candid moments you wish you had documented. And because Nixie is a drone, you eliminate the need for an actual photographer while achieving astounding angles for unique photos. This allows for everyone to truly enjoy the moment providing honest moments in snapshots.
Nixie is worn on the wrist, and with a simple gestue, it can fly up and off to snap a photo and then returns to the person’s hand. It’s similar to a camera and a boomerang rolled into one.
It all seems like a wonderful device, but as with commercial drones these days, problems can and will arise. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is slowly but surely finalizing various policies and regulations concerning commercial use of drones. And as with anything flying in the air, safety issues come into play. Malfunctions or misuse can cause trouble, potentially putting the user and Nixie in hot water.
Despite these issues, the competition rolls on. We’ll have to wait until November 3 to see who comes out on top. With all that’s been said, how much will the Nixie improve your everyday life? Do you see this as more of a novelty item or do you think most people will embrace these types of gadgets? Will the FAA or safety issues cause problems? We want to hear your thoughts.
