A Golden Snitch drone exists and we’re one step closer to real-life quidditch

Quidditch has to be the most popular fictional sport ever invented

Which is why it’s such a bummer that as muggles, we’ll never be able to play it for real.

But playing pretend just got a lot cooler, with the release of a new miniature drone that looks just like the Golden Snitch.

Reacting to a sensor, the Heliball will hover in the air and zip away when you try to catch it – just like the real Snitch.

The Golden Snitch Flying Heliball is available to buy from Typo and Myer.
