The IOT Group (ASX:IOT) has unveiled official footage of its much awaited flying selfie stick – the ROAM-e.

The video filmed in a secret warehouse in Sydney last week, shows the ROAM-e in action as it captures 360 panoramic shots using its facial recognition technology.

Announced in April this year, the Australian-made ROAM-e has already received global recognition and major interest from US and Australian retailers.

China is also in the mix to distribute the selfie drone, with Chinese manufacturing partner AEE currently gearing up for a production run in the third quarter.

“Since launch, we have been working with retailers locally and globally and already have indicative orders of over 440,000 units expected to be delivered prior to Christmas,” said Simon Kantor, ROAM-e Inventor, Founder and Executive Director of IOT Group.

“Production is already underway with 10,000 units expected to be ready by early August, increasing that to 50,000 per week to meet demand in Australia, Japan and the US. We as a team are focused on bringing a new category to the retail space and demand to date has been huge. The ROAM-e will spear head sales for the IOT Group allowing us to follow through with our smartwatch range, the Drones and other products in our Pipeline. The ROAM-e is at the forefront of the Selfie drone space.”

The ROAM-e is a personal flying selfie machine as small as a water bottle, and uses smart facial recognition technology to follow its owner around. Featuring a 1080hp camera, the Roam-e detects and avoids objects and can fly up to 25meters whilst remaining just 3m away from its owner.

“We have an exceptional, Australian developed product with the ROAM-e that will excite the worlds’ retail and consumer space to deliver a quality experience in the ever growing “Selfie” consumer Space. We are proud that this is Australian technology delivering to the world,” said Ian Duffell – Executive Director.

The ROAM-E Flying Selfie camera can be ordered online now for $499 Australian dollars at or US$399 at
