This new selfie drone is seriously creepy

We've seen the future of selfies, and it's spooky. The new Skydio R1 ($2,499) is the first drone that can follow you wherever you go and record live video as it does so. Its groundbreaking artificial intelligence software is no joke: "The drone knows your face, your gait, and your clothing. It hovers persistently behind your back, moving when you move, stopping when you stop, resisting every effort to shake it." It's being sold as a way to capture special moments, and if given the chance to film your next heroic mountain ascent, "who's not going to do it?" For now, though, it'll only fly for 16 minutes at a time.
