Solo travellers and sports enthusiasts will be particularly drawn to the Nixie Wearable Camera. This cutting-edge gadget gives the impression of an unusual sort of wristwatch, but it's most impressive when it's off your arm. Designed by Christoph Kohstall, Jelena Jovanovic and Michael Niedermayr for Intel's 'Make it Wearable' challenge, the device boasts the ability to take flight to get a broader perspective.

On command, the bracelet unclips and begins to hover with the help of its four tiny propellors. It can soar quite a distance, both up and away, to capture the greater scene of extreme activities, spectacular landscapes and incredible crowds. Capable of capturing photographs and videos, the helicopter camera would do away with the awkward act of taking a selfie. Who wouldn't love to see the Nixie Wearable Camera go into production?
