The AR.Drone remains highly popular and is so much fun that many buyers decided they needed two AR.Drone units, enabling dogfights and other one-on-one battles, complete with virtual weapons and using the real world as a virtual battlefield.
Full details along with greatly visual storytelling videos that show the AR.Drone in action are available at Parrot's AR.Drone website, where you'll also learn about Parrot's latest game for the AR.Drone: the upcoming free AR.FlyingAce download for AR.Drone owners.
It's the second game in the series, and is a game of 'air combat in augmented reality'.
The game takes place between two AR.Drones armed with 'plasma missiles', although naturally, the plasma missiles and accompanying virtual explosions take place on the screen as opposed to the real world, with the objective one you'd expect: virtually shoot down the opposition AR.Drone.
Because we're living in a virtual world where the weight of missiles doesn't matter, you are supplied with an unlimited number of missiles with which to wreak havoc upon your AR.Drone commanding competitor.
Once your competitors' drone has been detected by your drone's camera, a red-cross-shaped timekeeper appears on your iDevice's screen and your iDevice starts vibrating.
You then have to shake your iDevice to activate the sending of a missile towards the other fighter.
