This is a really cool device and project. I can imagine many other uses for the AirDog beyond sport practice... but the I really like it because it makes me recall some videogame heroes ;-)
But I'm a bit concerned about the legal issues around using drones. In Spain, the Government plans to establish a new "drone driving license": you must be a certified "drone pilot" in order to fly your own device.
Just an example: this week a guy was fined for using a drone in order to record the Running of the Bulls at Pamplona's Sanfermines.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
