Just how gauche the selfie stick really is? Some popular tourist spots have actually banished its use. Put it back in your bag. You might poke an eye out with that thing. 

The newest camera sensation? The Hover Camera Passport, a portable drone that you can take anywhere. Or, rather, follows you around as you scale the Himalayas or sky-dive from Fox Glacier. Imagine sweeping shots of the islands of Fiji or a video across Victoria Falls. Finally, travel shots that feature more of the beautiful background behind you than your face.

Slightly larger than you current, average smartphone, the foldable, 0.52-pound Hover Camera Passport can easily fit into your backpack. It boasts 4K video and 13-MP photo capabilities and is compatible with both Apple and Android. It has body-tracking and face-tracking tech that ensures the perfect shot. The drone also follows you around and can capture stunning 360-degree panoramas. It's made durable by its full-carbon enclosure.
