CES: Parrot Launches MiniDrone and Parrot Jumping Sumo
LAS VEGAS, USA – Parrot unveiled two new drones at the Consumer Electronics Show: the Parrot Mini Drone and Parrot Jumping Sumo. Both of these drones can be controlled via a tablet or a smartphone either through an iOS or an Android app.
The Parrot MiniDrone is basically a quad-copter that can be attached to a wheel carriage. The device is controlled via Bluetooth instead of Wi-Fi and sports various other sensors like the accelerometer, gyroscope, ultrasonic sensors and the downwards facing camera.
It can operate up to a range of 160 feet and the battery provides enough juice for the Mini-Drone to work in flight mode for 6-7 minutes.
