Control a Drone Helicopter with your iPhone – Video Games Become Reality – AWESOME! (Video & Photos)
This is really awesome. I have always wanted to learn how to fly a remote controlled plane or helicopter. The AR drone is an iphone controlled flying robot by parrot which is equipped with a camera for enabling augmented reality. For the first time an affordable helicopter will come with stabilized fly model, making it so easy to pilot even a child can control it. Thanks to its Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), Digital Signal Processor (DSP), Inertial measurement unit (IMU) and sensors, the Parrot AR.DRONE turns complex fly patterns into an easy-to-pilot system.
Children will pilot AR.DRONE instinctively, using the iPhone, without any learning curve. This allows for an incredible fly experience and acrobatics.The flying bot comes with four helicopter like propellers which enable it to fly both indoors and out. the camera is located on the nose of the device and is sent through a wireless signal to the iphone interface. The AR drone is controlled through an intuitive touchscreen application that gives the user control over all aspects of the flight. while the camera is great for seeing where you are flying it also allows the vehicle to be used in augmented reality scenarios. for instance, users can pretend to fire weapons at targets or battle against an opposing device.
