RICHMOND, Va -- If you're tired of taking selfies with your selfie stick -- or doing it old-school, with your arm -- you may soon have a new option.

Developers call it the Lily Camera. It's basically a drone that flies itself and films you.

A user throws the drone in the air, and it automatically begins recording high definition video of the user wherever they go.

The Lily Camera does not require a controller. Instead, it uses GPS, computer vision and a tracking device the user wears to follow the person around. It's designed for outdoor activities.

The device won a CES 2016 Innovation Award at the Consumer Electronics Show.

The Lily Camera is set to be released summer 2016. So far, pre-orders have reached $34 million.
