The Parrot AR.Drone is a four-propellered flying machine. It features two cameras, which enable the Drone to “see” via a Wifi connection. They also are able to help control the gadget’s speed and altitude. All of this is powered by the AR.Drone’s on-board computer, based on the Linux OS. More details on the Parrot’s Facebook page.
The Drone will be controllable via an iPhone app – and read this carefully: c o n t r o l l a b l e – not controlled – as you will see in this demo! Imagine you buy two of them – the retail price is rumored to be less than $400 – and you start air-attacking your son! That’s the perfect Father-and- Son game! Can’t wait to see it flying…..
