Every week we scour Kickstarter, Indiegogo and more to find the best crowdfunding projects around, so you know which ones to consider backing – and which to avoid.
Our pick this week is Selfly, a case for your phone that also doubles as a camera-equipped drone for taking selfies. And our one to avoid? A masturbation tool for men that doesn’t bear thinking about.

Want to feel like you’ve stepped in a time machine and been miraculously transported to the future? Imagine sliding your phone out of your pocket, pressing a button, and watching your case zap off into the air to take pictures for you. It might sound more like a James Bond toy than a real-life gadget, but it could soon be a reality.
A recent Kickstarter campaign has launched to bring the so-called SELFLY to the market. The team behind this wild creation, called SELFLY Camera, dub it, “An autonomous flying phone case camera which is only 9mm (3/8in) thin and easily fits in your pocket.” In simple terms, this is a case that actually gives your smartphone the power to fly, and take pictures along the way.
Drones and selfies have both been huge trends in technology in recent years, so it’s no surprise to see a boom in drones that take selfies. But Selfly goes a step further.
Not only is it a drone that can fly off and take a photo of you and your pals, it also doubles as a case for your smartphone. That way, you’ll never be without your drone should a suitable selfie opportunity arise.
Because of how convenient it is. Sure, if you’re heading out for a picnic you might well pack your drone, but you’re not going to take it everywhere you go. Even if it is small enough to carry, you still have to remember to pack it. Whereas if it’s also the case you use for your smartphone, it should always be about your person.
