 With its built-in Wi-Fi system, you can control the AR.Drone using the built-in accelerometer in your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad device. On-board cameras (one forward facing, one facing down) let you see in realtime what the pilot sees as you complete complex flight maneuvers…Powerful processing lets the AR.Drone integrate computer generated images directly into its realtime streaming video to create an augmented reality gaming environment complete with air-to-air missiles, interactive targeting systems, and fiery explosions.
