Airdog Drone

Last year in June, a Kickstarter campaign for world’s first auto-follow drone was launched, which ultimately finished the successful campaign with $1.3 million funding later. Airdog is about to start shipping their drone to the backers and would be getting ready to go on sale this year.

Company was one of the exhibitors at the CES event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The leashes also have some manual controls that allow you to make adjustments to the Airdog while you’re riding without having to whip out your smartphone.
