Submission + - iPhone/iTouch Controlled Quadrotor shown @ CES (

ruiner13 writes: At the CES this week, Parrot SA displayed their iPhone/iPod Touch controlled Quadrotor aircraft, the AR.Drone. Cameras in the craft can be used to guide the vehicle, and allow for the use of augmented reality for games and more. The system seems interesting to me as a developer, and seems to have an extensive API readily available on their Developer Zone. With all the hype surrounding 3-D displays and cameras at CES this year, I am glad to find an interesting and seemingly open product shown.

The hardest part of climbing the ladder of success is getting through the crowd at the bottom.
