AR DRONE brought to you by awesome
first off go here and watch the videos and let you brain explode: http://toucharcade.com/2010/01/06/ces-2010-parrot-ar-drone-an-iphone-controlled-quadricopter/
seriously though, the idea of the cam being on the copter is brilliant and developing third party games is amazing. no idea on price but im sure it will be... on the high end. id estimate at least $150.
but given its potential... thats a sweet freaking deal.
i really think this has some crazy applications.
and my first thought since im in broadcasting is, how can i record that wireless video signal and use the copter to get crazy awesome shots on film for any silly thing i want.
or if i can have the wireless signal broadcast to a laptop too and just record the video that way. oh man. im super pumped for this.
all that and i think its going to make for some great games if it gets a wide enough following. so check it out, and check out their homepage: www.parrot.com
