Taking Your Dog For A Walk… With a Drone?

/ 2 years ago


Drones are becoming more and more popular nowadays, from Amazon’s announcement of delivery drones to all sorts of drone inventions seen on the internet. Their usefulness in most cases is questionable, but people find all sort of ways to make them useful in the most creative way, such as this one apparently.

If you have a dog and cannot take him for a walk due to your daily activities, you normally hire someone to take him for a walk for you. However, if you don’t find anyone to do it, it’s not the end of the world. At least not for a videographer from New York it seems.

Jeff Meyers apparently used an AR drone to take his golden retriever for daily walks. From what is seen in the video, the canine friend is not bothered at all and actually enjoys being outside. The drone uses cameras to track the dog’s movement and also check to see if he is ok. So far, there have been no problems and everyone is happy with this method of dog walking.

Some problems may arise along with this innovating move, such as the question of how will the drone pick up the dog’s business when he finishes. But before thinking of those things, people still need to get used to the idea of seeing a drone walking a dog first of all.
