Congratulations to the winners of Intel's Make It Wearable Challenge. First place honors went to Nixie, the first flyable and wearable camera, (which was also our first pick). The startup and the product are a collaboration between a Stanford Ph.D. and a Google program manager. "We're not trying to build a quadcopter, we're trying to build a personal photographer," Jelena Jovanovic, Nixie's project manager, tells WIRED. Want to wear your own flying camera on your wrist like a snap bracelet? You'll have to wait just a little longer—Nixie is still in early development. But the $500,000 prize money and the Intel chips awarded to first place will hopefully move along the process at a faster rate.
