The 'selfie' is dead. Introducing the 'dronie' Published: July 25, 2014

Everyone's been at it – from animals and astronauts to police officers and the Pope; from Miley Cyrus and Rhianna to David Cameron and Barack Obama. Someone even did it atop the statue of Christ the Redeemer. But now the 'selfie' is old hat, thanks to a young pretender. Introducing the 'dronie'.

A 'dronie', also known as a 'sky selfie', is like selfie-plus – a 'selfie' taken, not by a camera phone in your outstretched hand, but by a flying drone camera.

Given the range and scope of a drone, a dronie is best done in a short video format, rather than a single image, as demonstrated here by instagram user superamit in Costa Rica.
