What is it? Par­rot’s smart­phone-com­pat­i­ble fly­ing ma­chines get more ca­pa­ble with ev­ery new re­lease. The Be­bop Drone boasts a 14 megapixel fish­eye-lens front-fac­ing cam­era that records video in full HD (1920x1080 pix­els) and streams a live feed to the phone or tablet you’re us­ing as a con­troller. It uses Wi-Fi 802.11ac on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz fre­quen­cies for a claimed Wi-Fi range of up to 2km us­ing its ded­i­cated con­troller. When’s it due? Comes in to land late in 2014. Why are we ex­cited? Where would our Gad­gets sec­tion be with­out these crazy, iOS-con­trolled mo­bile cam­eras? Whether it’s a fly­ing drone or a sub­ma­rine, they’re great fun to use, and we can’t wait to get our hands on this one in the au­tumn.
