GoPro announces foldable Karma drone, priced at $799

GoPro's Karma lets you take aerial shots with the GoPro camera, and the main highlight is its portability. The drone has a compact design and can be folded and placed in its dedicated backpack. It comes with a game-style touchscreen controller, which means you don't require a smartphone or tablet to control the drone, since the controller, will simultaneously provide you a live video feed.
