A Spy Drone For The Rest of Us
Find out exactly what your neighbours are doing.

Wondering what the neighbours are up to? Tired of big brother looking over your shoulder? Want to turn the tables on the surveillance state? Then 2012, friend, is your year: spy drones are going consumer.Meet Parrot. This Parisian mobile technology company is about the release the Ar.Drone 2.0. A quadricopter, this spy-aircraft is equipped with two HD cameras, an on-board computer and an altimeter. Use your iphone to fly the thing and record video: it’s all done over Wi-Fi.

Admittedly, the rumoured $300 price tag is a bit steep for something that’s cool enough only to use once or twice. And… it’s actually kind of creepy.Perhaps that’s why the manufacturer has built-in video games into the device. Practise rescue landings, play cat and mouse with another drone or have an air-to-ground shooting match with someone else. I guess it sounds fun?
