Now I know that the Partiot AR. Drone has been around for a bit but boy every time I see it I want one a little more. It is such a toy for anyone and everyone who loves gadgets and now the latest version can be controlled by your iPhone or Android which makes it all the more rad.
It also has a camera on it so you can take pictures and videos as it goes and it can even do flip. There is tech built-in to prevent the user from making a mistake and letting gravity take control. This latest version creates its own Wi-Fi hotspot which is how it is controlled by your i or Android device.
This is a video done at CES that shows one of the Drones in action.
Here is a promotional video for the AR. Drone that has all the bells and whistles of a professionally done video.
This is what the description says:
The AR.Drone 2.0 is at the crossroads where high-tech meets Icarus dream. Fly like a bird. View the earth from high above in high definition. Share your experience online with your friends.
So who wants one, I know I do. The kid inside that wanted to fly would jump at the chance to play with one of these babies. There is so much mischief that it makes possible. What I find funny is that the French company Parrot company creates wireless speakers, car kits, and decided and sell a flying device.
I wonder how that came about but I would buy a drink to the person or persons that pitched because it is pretty sweet. I just want to try it out now.
