Everybody, say hello to the Mind4!

Built by Airmind, the Mind4 just might become your new favorite drone.

So how's it different from the garden variety? Well, it's all a bit technical.

But here's the basics. You download an app and select a target.

The drone sees the target, and follows it around!

According to its Kickstarter, the Mind4 is the "World's first Android based drone uses computer vision to follow any subject precisely and recognize body gestures. No pilot, no GPS."


And you can track anything! Like a dog!

Or some caribou!

Or a skateboarder!

Radical bro!

Or... a woman jogging in a park... ?

Nothing creepy about that!

From multiple angles...?


Probably this couple on their honeymoon doesn't want you to track them either.

But I mean, hey, Robin Williams in One Hour Photo, its a free world!

Anyways, if you want this target-acquiring commercial drone to be a reality, now's the time to donate.

The Mind4 is a tenth of the way to its $100,000 Kickstarter with a month to go.
