I mean, who doesn’t want their own drone? The military has them, so why can’t I?


Seriously, one of the more eye-opening devices seen at CES was this hovercraft/helicopter/remote drone, which is controlled by — get this — an iPhone or iPod Touch. Its developed by Parrot, and intended to be used for games — but I’m thinking it can help me with walking my dog, or getting the paper on chilly mornings.

Listen to Parrot engineer Martin Lefebure (he’s off-camera) describe its uses, while he pilots its.  See more of their demos here.
