    Soon you'll be able to add a 'drone' to your 'phone'!

    At Showstoppers at CES 2018, SELFLY Camera and AEE viation Technology announced the AEE SELFLY, a smartphone case with an embedded drone! Yep, this unique device lets smartphone users turn their phone case into a drone to capture 1080P selfie pictures and/or videos. The company says the AEE SELFLY snaps onto most all standard size 4-6-inch smartphones. It has a flight time of four minutes with an approximate recharge time of 30 minutes. The 13MP camera supports capturing wide panoramic photos. New creative control “Fly by picture” mode makes for easy flying via your smartphone. A visual and sonar positioning system, plus foldable wings enhance portability of the drone case. Their app is compatible with iOS and Android devices. It's expected to ship spring 2018. MSRP is $130.00 and will include the AEE SELFLY smartphone case and two batteries for eight minutes of total flight time. It will be available on Amazon and at the company website:
