Lily Camera 

You're kayaking down roaring Class V rapids on the Payette River. Or you're shredding the slopes of Grand Targhee on a sick powder day. Or you're just about to reach the top of the crux on the hardest pitch of El Capitan. Your hands are sweating. Your muscles are burning.

But none of it really counts unless you post it on Facebook afterward. Meet Lily.

Lily is the first point-and-shoot camera built into a drone, so it can follow you and record your adventures. Just turn on the tracking device—about the size of a watch—and toss the little drone into the air. Lily has 20 minutes of flight time in which you can program her to fly behind, in front of or loop around you. She can capture HD video at 1080p and 12-megapixel stills, perfect for your next Banff Film Festival submission.

The body of the drone is waterproof, light and compact enough to throw in a backpack. Lily can float and she can withstand wind speeds of 20 miles per hour. She doesn't, however, have obstacle avoidance capabilities, so don't take her tree skiing.

You can preorder Lily now. She won't ship until February 2016, which is plenty of time to save up (she costs nearly $1,000) and get dangerously good at an extreme sport worth showing off., $999
