iPhone-Controlled Helicopter

Posted on in Blog

You read it right, folks. A helicopter or quadricopter that you can control from your iPhone is set to be released sometime this year by Parrot Wireless. I know, I know, what will they think of next, right? iPhones that drive your vehicle or control your mind? Or maybe even evil robots that drive your car and control your mind?

Regardless, the Parrot AR.Drone is the real deal—it’s being billed as the “First iPhone-Controlled Quadricopter Drone.” The Parrot AR.Drone comes with a camera plus 2 augmented reality video games! It also has an open development platform, which means developers can make their own quadricopter games (sounds dangerous to me).

No matter how cool, dangerous or ridiculous it may sound, the Parrot AR.Drone is only the beginning of iPhone controlled technology. The price is still unknown, but I can’t imagine it will be cheap. I think I’d be willing to splurge on something like this as long as it was cheaper than the iPhone itself. What about you?
