We covered Nixie not too long ago, but here’s yet another look at the world’s first wearable camera drone.

“The drone then returns to the wearer’s wrist, which could be controlled using a timer, or summoned using gestures. It was developed by Dr Christoph Kohstall, a physics researcher at Stanford University, with colleagues Jelena Jovanovic and Michael Niedermayr. Today, the drone won Intel’s annual Make It Wearable competition. As a result, the team has been awarded $500,000 to help make it a reality,” reports The Daily Mail.
