Drone meets Phone Case: Yeah. You read that right.

Look! Up in the Sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Is it a drone? Is it a cell phone case? Or is it the AEE SELFLY a smartphone case with a drone that's built right in, making it the first device of its kind and first of its class?!

Oh. Yeah. I guess that's what it is!

Introducing the AEE SELFLY, a smartphone case/drone hybrid that allows users to snap selfies and aerial photos and videos from literally anywhere!

See at Selfly

How does it work? Well with just the touch of a button, the drone detaches from the case soars into the air, allowing for a variety of different heights and angles that your arm and a selfie stick just can't match.

Using the screen on your smartphone, you can adjust the drone using high-end stabilization technology. The drone is even equipped with 1080P full HD video capability and has a flight time of up to four minutes, so you can capture some pretty stellar mini-drone footage!

Now I know what your thinking: this super, cool super selfie tech that seems like something out of Rainbow Six Siege meets Keeping Up with the Kardashians must cost, like, a bajillion dollars, right?

Wrong! You'll be able to pick up this case for around $130.

What do you think?!

Are you someone who would get a lot of use out of this case-meets-drone? Maybe you'd use it for other things besides selfies? Let us know what your thoughts are on the AEE SELFLY in the comments down below and what other tech you're super excited for at CES!

  • I received my selfly last month and it’s really a lot of fun. Once you get the hang of flying it, the selfly performs as advertised. It is a little light and shouldn’t be flown when it’s windy and the battery is only good for 3-4 minutes. However, if you want to eliminate the selfie stick or stretching your arm out to get that good photo or video, the selfly is a good and fun alternative.
