It is an RC Drone plane controlled by the iPhone across the cellular network, thereby limiting it's range only by the battery life. There is a video camera in the front allowing to see where it is going on the iPhone screen. Parrot, the manufacturer is on Facebook. Here is the link!
That's really neat... not just kinda... I'll give them $40 for one if they can make it operate through Android...
I dont need a quadracopter for $300 when I can get a helicopter for $40. Or a really good one for $80. I know the wouldnt have the same range, but I'm not doing recon on terrorists in the next county...
I work a few minutes from my house. I'd leave my sliding glass door open, and send it home incase I forgot something. Maybe install a little tray and train my dog to drop whatever it is in the tray and fly it back. That'd be pretty sweet.
