Snapchat’s second hardware product is a $ 230 Selfie Drone – IGN

Snapchat has released a flying selfie drone in limited edition called Pixy, which will set you back $ 230.

Revealed on the Snapchat website, a number of preset options will let the drone follow or circle around you, or simply float in place before landing in your hand once you have recorded the footage.

Everything recorded through Pixy is automatically transferred to your Snapchat memories, which allow further editing if required.

The drone will apparently not have long-term availability, as it is only available while stocks last, and only available in the US and France. Snapchat also warns against checking your local drone regulation laws before buying Pixy.

This is only the second piece of hardware Snapchat has released in its 11-year history. The social media company previously released official smart sunglasses called Spectacles in 2016.

The glasses could record up to 10 seconds of footage and, like Pixy, send those footage directly to your Snapchat memories for sending, sending or editing.

The Spectacles’ release also resembled Pixy, as it appeared to be more of an experiment for the company than a particular step in hardware.

CEO Evan Spiegel said at the time that Snapchat would manage a “slow approach to rolling them out” as “it’s about us having to figure out if it fits into people’s lives”.
