It is an age of innovation. That is being proved virtually on a daily basis and the most recent case is that smartphone maker Vivo is planning a smartphone that also packs a mini drone in it. And where there is a drone, you have to slap a camera on it! And before you know it, each and everything you wanted to photograph but could not because of the limitation of holding your camera phone in your hand, is suddenly lifted. Yes, it can be a no-limits smartphone - if it ever gets off the drawing board and comes to the shopping shelves near you or on any of the e-retailers for that matter.

It has been revealed that a patent has been filed by Vivo recently and it indicates that the company is working on a product just like this. The drone, with the camera strapped onto it can take off from your hands high into air over you and take a selfie or whatever else you had in mind - the possibilities are limitless, reported Tech Radar quoting LetsGoDigital. And it will not be any of your cheap looking drones either - it has as many as 4 fans to carry it aloft. It is square in shape and it will simply slide out of the top of the phone. Yes, it will be quite tiny.

Wait, there is more! There will be not just one camera, but two that will be shooting away to glory during the flight. And no, the drone will not fly blind, it has infrared sensors aboard that keeps it away from objects nearby

How exactly things will pan out thereafter is not really clear. How will the drone fly, how high, what will bring it down and other such questions are still hanging in the air, waiting for an answer. Presumably, there will be an app on the job somewhere - there is an app for everything these days, why not one for this too?
