Nixie, the winning product in Intel's Make-it-Wearable competition and demoed live in the CEO Keynote with the CEO Intel, is a portable flying camera that lets you capture yourself in the moment without interrupting the moment.

Our technology pushes the boundaries of numerous technical challenges in sensing, controls, autonomy, airframe, and safety design. We've built a prototype to show the experience and are now developing the product to be reliable, magical, and ready for users. To be successful, we are creating a novel architecture where the flight algorithm is not just a copy of a standard quadcopter, where the camera is not just a copy of a smartphone camera, and where the controller is not just an app.
