It’s #Ad Season. Don’t believe everything you see.

It’s the holiday season and our feeds are currently stuffed with gorgeous filtered photos and fifteen second videos warmed with soft music – all with one clear and focused goal: to make us buy and follow, follow and buy. Keep your wits about you.

This little device swivels and keeps its subjects in view, taking commands or snapping shots on its own. It’s a bit like a smart security camera or Facebook’s Portal, but meant to be taken with you wherever you go, attached to a selfie stick, and so on.
