In an age where social media reigns and validation comes in the form of digital hearts and thumbs ups, there is inevitable pressure to document every aspect of your life to impress the world. However, carrying selfie sticks or tripods everywhere you go is a complete hassle — and not to mention, makes you look like a tourist. So we weasel back into our inferior shells and let the pros dominate our timelines with their perfectly taken travel and lifestyle photos — courtesy of their photographers.

Well, at least up till now. Here’s a game-changer: Airselfie — the only portable flying camera that integrates with your smartphone cover. You can now take boundless HD photos of you and whomever you’re with, with the sky as the limit.

The camera and comes with a 5-megapixel HD video camera, anti-vibration shock absorber and four turbofan propellers that can fly up to 20 metres high — letting you capture wide, high-quality original photos and videos on your device.

Weighing just 52g, the Airselfie is ultra-light and slips into a special phone cover and charger. Its anodised aluminium body also protects the flying camera from wear and tear. There are truly no more excuses for anyone to whip out selfie sticks.

The Airselfie is controlled directly from a free intuitive app, available for iOS and Android. While not yet on the market, it is up for preorder on Airselfie’s site, where you’ll be among the first few to own your personal flying camera.

This is the future of selfies. Say goodbye to selfie sticks, and brace yourself for a thousand flying cameras narrowly missing hitting your face at the Eiffel Tower. Ah, first world problems.
