Drones seem to have many different applications: taking care of the Biosphere, delivering orders, attacking people, protecting rhinos, recording videos and now they could even become your dog's best friends.

Jeff Myers, new yorker and owner of a dog and a drone, decided to use its AR drone to walk his pet. Attached to the end of the dog’s leash, the aerial vehicle flies guiding and monitoring the animal.
This video shows the possibility of creating an automated interaction between people and pets with the help of unmanned robotic systems.
There are still few things to consider about using drones to take dogs out for a walk: for instance, who clean up after the pet?

so if the dog runs and the thing cant keep up will we soonly see a lot of gore on the streets? If the dogs hair or limbs catches inside of the propellors that would result into a tragedy.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
