Snap, the company behind Snapchat, has launched its second piece of hardware – a pared-back and pocket-sized drone called Pixy, designed for taking selfies.

Snap has aimed for accessibility with Pixy, which has a simple start button and mode dial instead of a controller, weighs a light 101 grams and has bright yellow plastic casing.

To recall the drone, users simply turn up their palm and it is prompted to land in their hand.

The company calls Pixy a “friendly flying camera” that functions as a companion to the Snapchat social media app. It comes six years after the launch of the company’s first hardware product, Spectacles, which are still on the market.

“We first created Snapchat as a new way to use the camera for self-expression and communication,” said Snap. “From Lenses to Spectacles, there are so many ways to share your perspective. Today, we’re taking the power and magic of the Snap Camera to new heights.”

Pixy has a front camera for capturing photos and videos, and a bottom camera for navigation. It flies on one of four preset flight paths that users select by turning a dial.
