The flying camera is the latest release from Snap, the company best known for its photo-sharing app Snapchat.
The small yellow drone is called the Pixie. It is described by the company as a “free-flying sidekick” that can help people take selfies without a selfie stick.
The gadget is available in France and the US. where laws are more liberal regarding drone use than in the UK.

Pixie works automatically, flying as video is taken, which is then transferred wirelessly and saved to the app.
At the end of the flight, the Selfie Drone lands in the palm of your hand.
