AirDog Drone Automatically Follows You: Golden Recorder

by Lambert Varias

Sports enthusiasts love drones because they allow them to take shots that would otherwise be impossible or expensive for them to make. The AirDog takes drones’ usefulness and efficiency to another level by eliminating the need for a cameraman. Thanks to a wearable tracker, AirDog can follow and shoot a subject on its own.

The AirLeash is AirDog’s tracker. AirDog can detect it from up to 1,000ft. away. AirLeash also acts as a remote control that can pause, resume and switch AirDog into one of six modes: auto-follow, relative position, follow track, hover and aim, circle and look down. You will also be able to make more precise adjustments to AirDog’s flight via a complementary mobile app, or you can opt to control the drone manually.

AirDog only works with GoPro Hero 3 or 3+ cameras fitted with the waterproof case. The drone’s gyo-stabilized gimbal ensures that the video it takes will be smooth and steady. Perhaps the only weak point of AirDog is that it only lasts around 10 to 20 minutes per charge. Fortunately its 4,000mAh battery is interchangeable.

Browser, sit! Pledge at least $1,195 (USD) on Kickstarter to get an AirDog as a reward.

It’ll be interesting to see how the AirDog and the Hexo+ compare once they’re both available.
