Could Soloshot be engineered to become an auto-follow drone?

The SOLOSHOT is on the cutting edge of automated camera tracking and are bringing the Soloshot2 to the prosumer market. The concept is pretty simple in that you place a camera on the Soloshot tripod in a fixed place, wear the waterproof/shockproof transmitter and have it track you wherever you go all without a cameraman and all automated.

On top of panning with a subject, this new generation of the SOLOSHOT2 automated camera control is capable of vertical tracking +/- 60 degree and up to 30 degrees per second. The transmitter can be sensed from 15 feet all the way up to 2,000 feet away.

Speaking of the transmitter, its been made smaller and lighter than the previous version and the camera controller is capable of tracking multiple transmitters simultaneously. Or you can have multiple cameras track a single transmitter in networking mode which allows you to create a great edit in post-production.

Third party professional tripods are now compatible with the SOLOSHOT2 as are a variety of cameras up to 5 pounds. It also sports start/pause recording and zooming on specific camera models SONY AX-100 4K camcorder and their VG line of interchangeable lens camcorders.

What if 3DRobotics acquired this company and developed on top of their existing technology.  Just a thought.
