Vimeo Creates A Drone Selfie Channel Called "Dronies" To Organize Remote-Controlled Vanity

So it's come to this. We already have the Global Selfie taken by NASA in the works, a Selfie Mirror, and now Drone Selfies are becoming a thing. But did anyone ask Vimeo to create a whole channel for people to explore drone-taken selfies, aka "Dronies"

The channel is less than a week old, and only sports 9 videos, but the quadcopter-induced vanity is pulsing. It's looming. It's real. Well, at least for people who have a spare remote-control personal drone with a camera attached...

So maybe this won't become a cultural phenomenon, but it's undeniably creepy how close "Dronies" is to "Droogies" a la A Clockwork Orange. But hey, as long as we don't see this kind of selfie spread into the military, there's not too much to fuss over. For now.
