Parrot Drone Controlled by Smartphone

• Next News Network

A new drone is able to take high-definition photographs and videos with a 180-degree field of view as it flies. This allows an extremely wide field of view. The Bebop drone, designed by Parrot, can be controlled from a smartphone. The 14-megapixel camera can take crisp photos, even in windy conditions. The aerial craft itself is small, and able to maneuver in tight spaces. As operators command the craft from their phones, they can keep a watch on whatever the drone is seeing. These high-definition videos and photographs can be stored on the drone, or copied to computers. The video technology is also compatible with the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset. Greater technical capabilities and decreasing costs are making drones far more common then they were just a few years ago. Drones first designed for military use have evolved into crafts many people can afford. Like most new technologies, the use of drones by hobbyist could have a significant impact on society.
