Parrot AR.Drone goes for pre-sale on Brookstone

Parrot's AR.Drone remote controlled quadricopter has now gone on pre-sale through a special deal Brookstone. The toy is unique in that it needs to be controlled using the Wi-Fi connection of an iPod touch, iPhone or iPad. It also has two integrated video cameras for streaming live images to the screen of the Apple device.

The front camera can be used for augmented reality when working in conjunction with the free app, allowing two quadricopters to have a dogfight while appearing to be virtual monsters or robots.

The AR.Drone costs $299 and begins shipping to buyers and Brookstone retail stores on September 3. The drone is available in three color combinations, with yellow, blue or green set against orange.
