When Parrot AR.Drone meets Myo armband, magic ensues (video)
Ah, Las Vegas, the right location for a spontaneous wedding ceremony. Earlier right now, we witnessed a fast and soiled collaboration between Parrot and Thalmic Labs at CES, the place they paired an AR.Drone 2.zero with a Myo gesture-management armband. The demonstrator was capable of management the drone’s tilt course through the use of only one arm, in addition to toggling the rotors by clicking fingers. This writer gave it a go as properly and located this management technique to be as easy because it appeared, although because of the WiFi interference on the present flooring (ugh, so typical of huge occasions today), the drone needed to keep inside an in depth proximity of the iPad that was relaying the Myo’s instructions.
There wasn’t a strategy to regulate the car’s peak in that specific demo, however there isn’t any stopping Thalmic Labs from assigning further gestures for that — perhaps clench fist to ascend and unfold hand to descend. Understandably, neither firm might affirm whether or not they’re bringing this function to market, however we might be very stunned if they do not maintain their marriage shifting ahead.
