Forget Selfies, Dronies Are The New Must-Take Travel Photo

Posted: Updated:

Selfies are so last season.

Meet "dronies," the cooler, more adventurous, amped-up sibling of the oft-maligned selfie.

A "dronie" is basically a selfie from the sky, taken not at arm's length from your smartphone but from an uber-cool drone that flies above you, photographing not only your face, but your (hopefully) beautiful surroundings.

According to The Telegraph, "dronies" are best taken as short videos, rather than single images. "Dronies" are even being encouraged by the New Zealand Tourism Board, which is piloting drones on ski runs to photograph skiers and snowboarders.

The "dronies" are then sent to the skier or boarder's phone, ready to be shared with friends, like the video below.

So yea. It's a thing. See?

Are you ready to take a "dronie"?
