Technology Highlight – AR Drone Game

Early this year we featured the AR drones – lightweight hover crafts that are essentially straight from Terminator – and we’ve featured them a few more times with the incredible things people have done with them. Now, we’re featuring them again, as a French inventor has turned them into a toy/game for kids using augmented reality. The drones are equipped with a camera so you can see what they see through your phone, and with an augmented reality overlay, you can shoot lasers and missiles at your opponents while trying to evade theirs. If you remember laser tag from the 90s, it kind of works like that, and the kid inside me wants one really bad – Santa, I’m looking at you. This guy programmed his drone to track a ball.
