Parrot AR.Drone consists of a central cockpit surrounded by four propellers, each driven by an engine. It offers amazing possibilities for piloting, excellent maneuverability and extraordinary stability.The heart of AR.Drone contains all electronic components and two cameras: The first camera, located underneath, connects to an Inertial Measurement Unit, which allows the AR.Drone to measure its speed and perform flawless stationary flight. Parrot Smart Piloting (PSP) technology compensates for wind and other environmental conditions during outside flights. For the first time, these technologies, used primarily for professional and military applications, have been adapted to the gaming universe. The second camera, at the front, broadcasts and streams to the iPhone(TM) or iPod touch(R) screen, what the AR.Drone sees, as if you were sitting in the cockpit. This allows for the augmented reality gaming experience.The Parrot AR.Drone generates its own Wi-Fi network that simply connects to an iPhone(TM) or iPod touch(R) and turns it into a true piloting station. –stepup21.com
Our office has been acquiring several RC helicopters, but the ultimate RC flying device is the Parrot AR Drone with Live Camera, controlled by an iPad. While this is an awesome RC device, I can’t help but to wonder if it’s the ultimate peeping tom tool. And you want to buy it, it runs for $299.99m.
