Instead of taking the dog out on a walk himself, videographer Jeff Myers decided to let his AR Drone do it for him. Equipped with a leash and a 'tracking system' (it's actually just part of the video's effects), the drone took Myers's golden retriever out for a stroll through the neighborhood. I guess dogs don't have any problems with drones because this one didn't seem to be bothered at all. Check out the video below.

Update: Motherboard has some interesting information regarding this video.
