RIP, Lily: The “drone that flies itself” actually won’t be flying at all.

The Lily was one of the first of its kind: an ultra portable drone that follows a tracking device that you wear on your wrist. All you had to do was throw the thing in the air, and voila! It would fly according to whichever flight path you chose. Read more
