Social media related drones: Pixy

The Pixy is Snapchat’s latest hardware launch. Marking the social media company’s second gear, the Pixy is an essential drone. The drone is pocket sized and is designed for hands-free selfies. It aims to create accessibility for all users with its light weight of 101 grams.

The Pixy is controlled by a simple start button and a mode dial, rather than requiring a controller. Designed with a bright yellow plastic casing, users can recall the drone by turning their palms towards the sky. The pixy is then invited to land in their hands for a highly user-friendly experience. Dubbed the “friendly flying camera,” the Pixy serves as Snapchat’s social media app companion for a new shooting experience.
