Presentation: Futuristic Toy, The Parrot Drone

For my presentation, I came across a really cool toy that I saw in Brookstone’s.  It is a drone that you can fly with your iPad, iPod, iPhone, or android.  The drone has cameras aboard that display real time footage on the screen of the device you control it with.  It also records photos/video.  The connection between your phone or iPad is wifi-based.  I used to be a R/C car and plane enthusiast, so I wonder how far you can fly the drone without losing wifi or if the wifi strength has an effect on flying.  Otherwise I would definitely consider getting one even though it’s $300 on Brookstone’s.
