Parrot's Bebop Drone is your fisheye in the sky

Susie Ochs | May 14, 2014
Whether you, personally, view this as a sign of the end times or not, drone selfies are all the rage. Taking a picture of yourself with your arm stuck way out is so last year. Now it's all about swooping a video camera down from the sky. We love the drama, as long as watching the resulting shaky video doesn't actually make us nauseous.

We didn't get to test the Oculus setup in our brief hands-on time with the Bebop Drone. But even with all this extra tech, the Bebop is simple for newbie pilots to get the hang of. Parrot didn't reveal a price, but its AR.Drone 2.0 is $300, and the Bebop is similar but more advanced. The Bebop Drone and Skycontroller will take to the friendly skies sometime in Q4 of 2014.
