Parrot, one of the globe's leading builder of wireless technologies for vehicles, home and beyond for more than 15 years will be releasing the AR.Drone project this 2010. This is would probably be one of the most awaited event in the gaming community as it uses augmented reality for maximum gaming experience.
After almost four years of research and hardwork, AR.Drone will finally be flying around. Parrot AR.Drone is a quadricopter that consists of a central cockpit surrounded by four propellers, each driven by an engine. It is the first quadricopter controlled remotely by your iPhone or iPod Touch through the use of wi-fi technology. It offers amazing possibilities for piloting, excellent maneuverability and extraordinary stability.

It could really be a cool device but I can just see it now, some peeping tom is going to love this toy. This would probably be a must have for all the spy wannabes out there. Sure, it was developed primarily for real gaming experience but with the limitless possibilities it can do, it may also be used as an instrument to bring harm to others. Well, let's just hope for the best.
