This is something I actually forgot to post from CES Preview, which was exactly 9 days ago. Turns out, one of the best (and only) things that there were was free food (!), my Samsung contacts and the Galaxy Tab with Galaxy S, and finally the Parrot AR Drone. This wonderment of technology that meets R/C, toys, and mobile smartphones is controlled by your iPhone/iPad using its motion censors. You’ve probably heard of it a thousand times, and if you haven’t I’ll continue with how it works.
Each one costs $299.99 and comes with an outdoor and indoor kit, both pictured in the gallery below. the AR Drone is a noisy UFO-like object, but when in action it’s a reason to smile at today’s toys. On numerous occasions, the demo AR Drone followed me around the showroom, and even tried to bump into me, while mostly everyone else smiled and laughed. And for some reason, my Dad wants one, and not me. Interesting.
Originally there was going to be HD video of it in this post, but then the file is not being read. Oh well. Enjoy the shots after the “more” then.
