Who doesn't need a mini-drone that can follow you around and take pretty pictures? This little drone sounds a bit like a puppy--it follows hands commands such as away, follow, beckon, selfie, and record. It even recognizes your face and will launch directly from your palm and hover there waiting for you to tell it what to do. Throw in a nice camera and you can take the coolest pics on your block. Just one thing, these drones have a history of being easily hacked.
What could happen if something goes wrong?
DJI drones have been easily hacked in the past. In 2017, the US Military issued a ban on using this company's drones for military purposes. Owning an insecure flying camera could present some problems for civilians too, so buyer beware.
