French tech company Parrot did a clever thing after Air Jordan DMP launching a range of mini drones at the CES technology show in Air Jordan 6s January. After asking consumers what they thought of the machines, the answer they got back was ”give them personality”.
As a result, the ready to play Rolling Spider and Jumping Sumo toy drones have real character.
The spindly flying Spider can also climb walls and ceilings like a furtive arachnid, with its removable wheels. The two wheeled Sumo has green eyes that turn red before it springs for an 80 centimetre jump, making a cat Air Jordan 9s like landing.
Spider captures vertical views with its built in camera. Sumo streams video to a phone or tablet screen.
Both drones can be personalised with stickers to give them facial expressions.
With the FreeFlight 3 app loaded on a smartphone or tablet, novices will be able to master navigation of these mini drones, controlling their actions by touch or tilt from a range of up to 20 metres for Rolling Spider and 50 metres for Jumping Sumo.
Spider takes a little longer to master its aerial tricks but it can stay in the air hands free while you figure it out. The 55 gram, four propeller unit runs on Bluetooth; the Sumo ground dweller uses Wi Fi and comes in stealth black, commando khaki or Star Wars Air Jordan 2011 white.
As with Parrot’s AR drone, if you crash the machine you can replace every part.
Run time is eight minutes for the Spider and 20 minutes for Sumo, and Air Jordan Women Size they take 90 minutes to fully recharge.
Both machines run on the Linux OS and come with a software development kit for programmers.
RRP $139.99 Rolling Spider, $219.99 Jumping Sumo.
