This concept is set to make your mobile phone even more mobile

UK-based think tank Buzz Technology has an interesting prototype for smartphones of the future. Called Drone-in-a-Phone, it’s a foldable microdrone that fits the back of any smartphone. To use, just unlatch, fold it out and attach the modular camera before letting it take the air.

The Drone-in-a-Phone is an extension of a project where Buzz Technology envisions a phone with a detachable camera. Unlike Project Ara, these modular cameras will remain tethered to the phone at all times using a thin cord. The tiny camera cube can then be used to capture images from different angles and placed on accessories like a built-in projection to be used as a selfie-stick.
