Imagine your watch could transform into a remote-controlled quadcopter with just a shake of your hand. This is pretty much what one of the finalists of Intel’s Make It Wearable competition, in which 10 teams of young entrepreneurs develop their proposals into working machines, has created. Called Nixie, the device was built as the first flyable and wearable camera and we can’t wait for it go into production.
Intel has started the Make It Wearable (MIW) challenge nine months ago and now, out of thousands of global participants that got the chance to inspire the next big idea in wearable technology, 10 teams have made it to the final round. The final purpose is going to win the $500,000 Make It Wearable Grand Prize.

Nixie is one of those 10 finalist projects to fight. Initially started off as a lying pair of glasses, the device is now a wristband that unfolds into remote-controlled quadcopter. “Nixie puts you front and center in your photos and videos-without requiring your hands, or you attention. From selfies to panoramas to continuous movies, it offers preset modes for any on-the-go situation,” the device is described by its creator.

Needless to say there are endless uses of this device, but we tend to believe Nixie could become the next big hit in the drone industry, an industry that is evolving with an extremely fast pace. Meanwhile, just check the video below to get a better impression.
