Quadricopter controlled by iPhone, two cameras on board

Look out! Here comes the Quadricopter, and it's controllable with your iPhone or iPod Touch's accelerometer. The Parrott AR.Drone has 640x480 15fps front-facing camera, transmitting its video to your iPhone. There's another camera facing down, shooting in lower rez but at 60fps. It's even smart enough to take off and land by itself.

Parrot says it'll be available by the end of the year, and now gaming developers are working with the aircraft and its two cameras to create unique content. Let you imagination run wild. While you do that, look at how stable it already flies, easily controlled by tilting the iPhone one way or another. Sure, it's a toy, but it's so sophisticated, it comes close to that narrow line separating toys from precision weapons.
