The things electronics companies do for love… For the customers’ love that is, or, even better, for their wallets.

The latest example is Samsung, who’s taken to promoting its Galaxy NX Android smart camera through an ingenious campaign. The company teamed up with Getty Images, the stock photo agency, to let amateur photographers shoot exclusive events from a distance via a neat little robot.

Of course, the whole point is to show how great connected cameras can be. We’ll let you decide if that’s true. We just liked the rover.

    HTC has a One powered satellite in orbit. So Samsung just made a project two years later that’s ions behind. *slow clap*

    Gimmick. Gawd Samsung can be such idiots at times. This Rover had a video crew following it and any one of those folks could have taken the dang photo themselves. Why need to watch a robot do it? Such a waste of time and money!!
