The iPhone does almost everything, right? Dang right it does! It even controls flight! Check out this video of the Parrot G Drone that Judie, Dan and Larry filmed with their iPhone! An app on the iPhone actually is actually being used to control the Drone. Using augmented reality the device feeds live video to the iPhone. The app running on the iPhone is not only used to control the craft but it also adds landscape, enemies and more. The first of a new genre of games- The Augmented Reality Video Game- The Parrot G Drone received Best of Innovations honors from CES.
According to Dan… who was more than a bit impressed… “In person this is amazing. And the fact that it uses the iPhone’s camera for control and creating an augmented reality within which to fly is nothing short of awesome. Can’t wait to try it out when it is released.”
We’ll have more details soon.
