A successfully crowdfunded project, the Hexo+ follow-me drone slipped from its September ship date last fall. But it looks like a real product at CES. It's not nearly as cute as the Onagofly, but you can mount a GoPro on this one for the best possible extreme selfie videos.

The Best Gadgets on CES 2016 (part 5)

All the cool new gadgets at CES 2016.
Our picks of the hottest, coolest and most sizzling tech on show in Las Vegas.

Intel 3D replay technology

Intel brings Monday-morning quarterbacking into the 21st century. Out of all the whizzy reveals at its press conference -- telepresence robots, looks-like-you gaming avatars, smart construction helmets and more -- I think the one that will generate the most fist-pumping is its RealSense-based technology for capturing a live sporting event in three dimensions. Then you can manipulate it to see different angles for critique and analysis. Not only will it make for madder March Madness and wilder World Cups, but it looks like a really useful tool for coaching and training.

Faraday FFZERO1

Forget the fact that this is just a concept car, powerful and insanely automated. What really matters is that if they made those silver parts black it would be a BATMOBILE.

Activeon Solar X

Given that action cams are usually used outdoors, when you're being, you know, active, it makes sense that they should have a charging solution that works under those conditions. The Solar X comes with the X Station, a quick-charger with solar flaps. Now you can juice up your camera while you're heading up the mountain so it's ready to record when you tumble head-over-tail down it. The X Station will be available in March for $430 (around AU$600 or £295).

EHang 184 AAV octocopter

It's not the first solo copter, but I still would love one for aerial photography. Or just escaping Manhattan. And I like the someone-plopped-a-stasis-pod-on-a-drone look. This one will be able to carry a person weighing up to to 220 pounds for 23 miles at 60 miles per hour (97 kph) -- if problems with cost, safety, engineering and regulations even let it get off the ground.
