CES 2010: Parrot Demos AR.Drone, RC Flying WiFi

parrot ar.drone rc flyerIn eye-catching demos reminiscent of WowWee’s Dragonfly in 2007, Parrot is showing off its AR.Drone which is a 4-propeller remote controlled flying ‘thing’. The AR.Drone features 2 cameras that you can view in real-time via WiFi, and also includes its own brain in the way of a Linux-based computer.

The AR.Drone will also ship with an augmented reality game, so you fly it as a virtual joystick of sorts. Parrot plans to offer up an iPhone app, but better yet, the source code as well so that hackers can develop even more interesting things for it. This may lead to a bright future for the AR.Drone.

Availability is tentatively March 5, but no word on pricing yet.

Remote Control Lamborghini Murcielado 1/10 Scale

Remote Control Lamborghini

Love model racing cars? You probably are, and chances are that if you are anything like me, you don’t have the money to go out and buy the ones that you lust after. I came across this awesome little Remote Controlled Lamborghini and fell in love with it.

I am actually a child at heart, despite my age. As soon as I saw the Lamborghini it took me back to the elementary age when I was outside with my big brother creating dirt ramps for our remote controlled cars. How much fun was that? I don’t care how old you are, this is for folks of all ages!

One thing to keep in mind is that this car does come in a variety of colors. I’m sure the paint color doesn’t impact the way the thing drives though. They look to be a lot of fun!
