The HEXO+ is an incredible drone that flies autonomously over users and films them while they're engaged in activities like skiing, snowboarding, riding a motorbike or any other activity which they would like filmed.

Users can use an accompanying app to select the perspective from which they wish to be filmed, such as from what angle, orientation and distance. These settings are then fed to the drone, which gets into position and waits for the user to start moving.

Once the user starts moving, the HEXO+ flies along with them, autonomously adjusting its position to maintain the user's desired framing. The drone keeps track of the user's position by via their cellphone, but also uses predictive algorithms to predict users' trajectory.

Aside from these amazing autonomous features, users can also use the app or a controller to manually fly the device.
