The AR. Drone lands in UAE!

One of the coolest gadgets on display during DCC was Parrot’s AR.Drone which got a live hands-on demo of. As you can see from the video below, the AR.Drone is designed to be a game, but not in the traditional sense. You actually control a live quad-propeller drone that you can control via your iPhone or any other iOS device. You can direct the drone via onscreen touch-controls while the screen shows a live feed from the on board camera. The AR.Drone will be available from June onwards. We’ll have more details on it soon.

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
