Snap, the firm behind the Snapchat social media platform, has unveiled Pixy, a drone designed particularly for snapping selfies. At the Snap Partner Summit 2022, the business unveiled Pixy.
In the guise of a selfie drone, the bright yellow small device is essentially a creative buddy. The device takes off from your palm and follows you about, capturing film that can be uploaded to the Snapchat app immediately.
The Snapchat Pixy selfie drone weighs 100 grams (0.22 pounds) and is about the size of a palm. It’s still unclear how a person starts a flight or how much control they have over its direction or duration. Pixy has four pre-programmed flight paths and does not utilize controllers like other drones.
The Snapchat Pixy flying cameras, which cost $230 (Around Rs. 42000) each, are available “while supplies last” in the United States and France, according to the manufacturer. Pixy was announced by Spiegel during Snap Partner Summit 2022, the company’s annual event for developers and other partners.
“It’s a pocket-sized, free-flying buddy for large and small adventures,” said Snap co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel. “In the palm of your hand, you have all you need to capture the spontaneity and excitement of the moment from new viewpoints.”
Snapchat Pixy flying videos are wirelessly shared and stored in Snapchat Memories. After that, you may alter the captured video with Snapchat’s editing tools, Lenses, and Sounds, and then share it via Snapchat Chat, Stories, or Spotlight (or to third-party platforms). The 3.6-ounce Pixy has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery and is 131.7mm x 106mm x 17.6mm.
