I guess I’m still a kid at heart! I’m not sure the Parrot AR.Drone is for real if for no other reason: the WiFi signal strength is a huge limitation. The signal just doesn’t go as far as this video gives the impression it goes. And WiFi signals are not that portable. You can’t just create a network in an open, empty field. And forget ever using AT&T‘s “fastest” and smallest 3G network! Even if AT&T opened access for this type of data transfer, their network would choke before this thing ever got off the ground.
But the idea is way cool.
