Cult of Mac CES 2016 full coverage LAS VEGAS — Learning how to fly a drone isn’t easy, and accidents happen all the time. Wouldn’t it be great if your drone could just fly itself?

AirDog does just that. In fact, the only way to fly AirDog is to use its incredible auto-following technology that keeps the camera aimed at you during the entire flight Cult of Mac met up with the makers of AirDog at CES 2016 for a mountain-biking demo in the desert to see how the drone uses LiDAR and other tech to capture spectacular aerial footage on the fly without any human intervention. We came away ridiculously impressed.

Despite some uncooperative weather, AirDog amazed us with its different modes for action sports that adjust how the drone shoots so you don’t have to worry about crashes or retrieving it from hard-to-reach places.

Best of all, it’s super-compact, making it the perfect video tool for adventurers looking to capture footage in remote locations.
