Here's the World's First Throw-and-Shoot Drone Camera

The new Lily camera is billed as the world’s first throw-and-shoot camera, but basically, it’s a camera drone that you can throw in the air. Whatever you call it, this camera can fly 25 miles per hour, lasts up to 20 minutes on a charge and has range up to 100 feet. Users will be able to control it with a remote control pod. It also has a GPS that will be able to track your movements.

It’s also waterproof, ultra-portable and shoots HD pictures and videos. It’s also not cheap. It’s $499 if you pre-order or $999 if you wait until it will be officially for sale (which could be months).
