Readers of the Uglies series may remember Aya’s pal Moggle in Extras, a semi-intelligent hovercam that tracks her around, providing footage of her exploits for her feed.
It seems that someone has invented something similar, but called it Lily.
Lily, of course, uses rotors instead of magnetic lifters, and only has 20 minutes battery life. It costs $500 if preordered now before anyone has reviewed a real one, and will be twice that when it ships next February. (Buyer beware.)
Here’s the camera’s official site, and you can find tons of other articles around the web.
It’s not quite Moggle, but it’s proof of concept. And why wouldn’t we all want our own hovercam following us around?
(Thanks to everyone who sent me this!)
