At last year’s E3, French company Parrot revealed its AR.Drone. It’s a flying machine – a quadricopter – and instead of a traditional radio control unit, you can pilot the aircraft using your mobile phone. Until recently, the technology was only available for iOS, but a recent update has seen the doors opened for Android smartphones, Samsung’s Bada, and Nokia handsets.
We caught up with Parrot's Vice President of Marketing & Communication, Cristina Sanz, while at E3 2011, to chat about what’s new for the company. She told us all about the developers that are using the AR.Drone technology, how the app and the Drone works, and a little bit about what’s coming up in the future.
