2013 was known as the year of selfies. This year you should take it to the next level with your own robotic video cameraman.

SOLOSHOT announced its latest project Tuesday, the SOLOSHOT2. It tracks your every move using a radio signal. It tilts up and down and pans left to right, keeping you in the frame the entire time, whether you're skiing, surfing, or doing just about anything. It's pricey at $399 and that's at a $100 discount if you pre-order now. The original SOLOSHOT, which just moves left to right, sells for $299 and ships now.

A camera accessory the company is also releasing will allow the person using SOLOSHOT2 to record and mark the footage if something radical happens. It also has a zoom feature that can be used with certain cameras.

SOLOSHOT CEO Chris Boyle employs 15 people in San Antonio who do everything, even manufacturing. He has seen a lot of parents use it to film their kids' sporting events. "Instead of watching the game, your smartphone is up," Boyle said. "It's like a barrier between you and the experience." Now, he said, it's back to being on the sidelines and cheering while SOLOSHOT does the work.
