Drones can't fetch a taco for you, but they can lift cameras into the sky and return impressive aerial video and photography. Trouble is, today's flying machines require a human pilot to manipulate their complex controls.

Sameer Parekh wants do away with remotes and have intelligent drones simply do his bidding. So he quit his day job as a Wall Street quant and launched an autonomous flying robot company, called Falkor Systems. (Note: It recently merged with I Heart Engineering, a company that builds and sells open-source robotics products.)

Parekh's early Pet AR.Drone prototype uses artificial intelligence algorithms to track a person, follow him or her around from a safe distance, and film the journey.
