California company raises over $200,000 to build autonomous drone

A California company has created a personal drone that flies without a pilot or a controller.

The AirDog is the “world’s first autonomous personal action sports drone,” according to its company, Helico Aerospace Industries US LLC based in Palo Alto, Calif.

The flying drone takes off, lands and can follow you using a wristband worn by the user.

The company’s Kickstarter campaign has raised over $235,000, significantly more than it’s goal of $200,000.

“It took 285 believers to make our dream come true. You have made the right choice. We are now inspired to keep on innovating to make AirDog the most useful and intelligent personal drone system out there,” the company wrote on it’s kickstarter page.
