Sure, we’ve seen a few of these drones, which are so compact, they fit perfectly into the back of a smartphone case, but the Selfly drone has been designed specifically to pimp up your selfies.

Like the Mito drone, the Selfly can simply be detached from the smartphone case, unfolded and launched in the air. It’ll then autonomously start hovering your face, taking snaps and recording video, then streaming it back to your smartphone.

You can control the drone too, if you’re not happy with the angle it’s getting of your face, but it will need to be connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your phone. Control options include tilting your phone to make the drone move or using a more conventional joystick configuration if you’re more gamer-centric.

The drone measures just 9mm thick and the camera takes photos at a resolution of 8-megapixels or records video at 1080p at a rate of 30fps. The case will apparently fit all 4-inch to 6-inch devices with an adaptor, but the company hopes to launch cases designed to fit the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, Galaxy S6 Edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy 7, Galaxy 7 Edge, and Nexus 6 in future.

However, it’s likely the battery life will let you down a little, because its 650mAh capacity will only provide around five minutes of flying time.

Like many of these ingenious-sounding ideas, the Selfly drone is available to pre-order on Kickstarter, where it’s already passed its goal of $125,000 (£99,600). It’ll set you back $89 (£70) if you order it via Kickstarter, but if you wait until it’s released on the general market, it’ll cost $129 (£100).
