AR.Drone Brings Augmented Reality Gaming to the iPhone

AR.Drone gaming application brings augmented reality gaming to iPhone

The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) at Las Vegas has thrown up some interesting projects. For iPhone users, one of the coolest gaming applications you will come across was recently demoed at CES. 

Developed by Parrot, this gaming app, called AR.Drone lets you control a four-propellered flying machine with the help of an iPhone application

Folks at App Advice explain what Parrot’s AR.Drone is all about. They write:

“The Parrot AR.Drone is a four-propellered ultimate flying machine.  The AR.Drone features two cameras, which will allow you to see what the Drone sees via a Wi-Fi connection, and they also apparently are able to help control the device’s speed and altitude.  All of this is powered by the AR.Drone’s on-board Linux-based computer.”

Apparently, this is not all. The application also comes with an augmented reality game where the AR.Drone will self-hover as you fire against the enemies virtually on your iPhone. AR.Drone also comes in dual mode for users to play against each other or play against a robot. The AR.Drone is expected to be available in the market by the first week of March. 

Check out a demo of AR.Drone in the videos below:
