Description

There are some products that are shown at CES that are just cool and everyone who is a kid at heart just wants, the AR. Drone by Parrot is one of those gadgets. This year at CES 2012 they introduced AR. Drone Mark 2. The Mark 2 (aka AR. Drone 2.0) is controlled by a smart phone or tablet. It has a one button launch. Once it is launched it will sit and hove till the next command. The AR. Drone Mark 2 can fly up to 150 feet in the air, or as far as WiFi will allow. AR. Drone Mark 2 has stabilization and pressure sensor technology built into it. On the front is an HD camera and a standard def camera on the bottom. You can stream and record the video back to the phone via WiFi. The video can then be uploaded to your favorite social site, including YouTube and Facebook.


It comes with two hulls: one for in-home use and one for outdoor use. It is built to take some crashes, but if something breaks you can get replacement parts online. The AR. Drone Mark 2 should be available in the second quarter of 2012 for about $299.00, according to Peter George of Parrot.


Once you are finished playing with the AR. Drone Mark 2, you may want to relax with a little music and some quiet time; well, Parrot has you covered there too. They are introducing a pair of stereo cordless headsets that are noise canceling called the Parrot Zik. They work over either Bluetooth or the included cord. They run on a rechargeable battery and give about 5 hours of listening pleasure. Once the battery runs down you can continue listening by connecting the cord. What makes the Parrot Zik headphones stand out besides the great style by French designer Philippe Starck are the controls on the headphones. There is a touchpad on the headphone which allows you to skip back and forth through tracks by swiping right or left and control volume by swiping up and down. The headphones fold down flat to fit into a small carrying case. There is no price or launch date at this time, but they should be available sometime in 2012 at various retailers. All together Parrot introduced seven new products at CES 2012, including three additional products in the car environment and the asteroid marketplace. You can take a look at all of them at their website.
