Lily is the world's first 'throw-and-shoot' camera that lets anyone capture cinematic aerial photos and videos without needing to do any piloting. The drone follows a wearable GPS tracker and is crafted to be completely user focused - from ease of use (powering on as you throw it out of your bag) to keeping the user centre-frame.
Logitech's 'Circle' home-camera has evolved its function from security to being connected to come. It creates a 'Day Brief' that shows a 30-second highlight clip of everything it's captured. In order to do that, Logitech's 'scene intuition' feature filters out footage and selects the best moments. The camera is also portable and two-talk capabilities, so you can check-in on the dog or have a lengthy call with the family using the camera's Android or iOS app.
Both of these cameras change the traditional form of capturing moments by employing a digitised or robotic 'photographer'. Instead of the typical absence, the user can now be part of the memories they want to capture. The shift to automated documentation shows value in mindlessness and candid moments and perhaps, a growing sense of comfort with being watched.
