Hover's coolest feature by far, though, is its auto-follow modes. Once it's in the air, you can lock the camera onto you or another person's face or body and it will automatically follow you. Like a magically floating GoPro, it keeps your face or body focused in the camera frame the entire time, keeping pace even if you're speeding along on a bike. If you want, you can also engage the orbit mode, which will shoot a 360-degree wraparound video of you, even if you're moving.
At $550, it's a pricey selfie-snapping accessory, but considering the thing is roughly the size of a Kindle, it makes the most sense as a travel companion since it can capture vistas and memories from jet-setting adventures around the world in a way even the best smartphone cameras cannot. Bottom line, once you've spent some time with it, you're going to want your own.
