Next Level Aerial Filming: the world’s first automatic flying follow-cam

An email from Next Level Aerial Filming crossed our inboxes not long ago and it is just too interesting to ignore. Apparently after using a phone to activate the drone, its internal computer system can identify and lock onto a subject and follow it as soon as motion is detected. By the looks of the video this automatic flying follow-cam appears to be legit. Could this be how the tried and true buddy-cam maneuver reaches its untimely demise? While that question may be rhetorical, there is definitely no question that this is some promisingly badass technology.
