I think what’s cool about the the AR Drone is its integration of several innovations
It has feedback systems (accelerometer, gyroscope, ultrasound, video) allowing it to be self-stabilizing. Turn it on, and it rises up several feet, and (eerily) just sits there, like a bumblebee.
- iPhone controller
It’s WIFI-enabled, enabling it to be controlled from an iPhone app.
- web cam
WIFI capability allows it to stream video back to the phone.
The combination works together nicely.
