So, some of you may know, many may not.... I got a fantastic Christmas present from my parents, and I'm not talking about their presence over the break!(although that was pretty awesome too)
I got a Parrot AR Drone. If you don't know what that is, or feel like giving the link a go, I'll break it down for you. Parrot is a bluetooth and in car stereo phone integration company. For whatever reason, they are one of the first companies to come out with a consumer grade quad-copter. The fun thing is that instead of making a really expensive controller for their quad-copter, they've just made an app for the iPhone that uses the tilt sensor in the iPhone control the Drone's movement.
Okay, that was the wordy definition.... it's a freaking UFO that you control with your iPhone! And it records video!
Here's my first flight testing out the video recording capabilities. Oh, and I named it Sparrow, like the tattoo.
oh, and just so you know what it looks like flying... i fly it at lunch today and my friend shot me flying.
