CES 2010 was where we first heard of the Parrot AR.Drone, a radio-controlled quadricopter that hooked up via Wi-Fi to an iPhone app. And now, two years later, that product is out and successful -- and now, obsolete. Parrot used CES 2012 a few weeks ago to introduce the AR.Drone 2.0, a brand new ve...

Though the video of two AR Drones dogfighting in New York City's Central Park -- demonstrating AR game Flyingace -- is amazing enough on its own, we imagine the two dudes staring intently at their iPhones while controlling the drones are even more amazing to see.

We're supposed to hear more about the AR.Drone at E3 in a few weeks, but you may not have to wait that long -- Flypad is an app coming soon to the App Store that purports to let you fly any RC-controlled plane with an iPhone, just by connecting the iPhone's audio out signal up to an adapter.

We actually got to play with the iPhone-controlled Parrot AR.Drone quadricopter back at Macworld a little while ago, but we didn't get a chance to see the "AR" part of it (augmented reality, of course) until GDC last week. Parrot pulled out the AR targets for us, and while the games they had runnin...

We first heard about the Parrot AR.Drone, an iPhone-controlled RC quadrocopter, back when it made such a big splash at CES, but unfortunately, since we weren't there, we didn't get to see it in person. Fortunately Parrot did come by Macworld, and the day before the show, we finally got to see their...
