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.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
