We have all seen the Parrot AR Drone many times, but this time around they have something a bit more exciting to show us. The company has optimized the AR-controlled drone to work with the NVIDIA Shield and we have a demo from NVIDIA’s GTC conference!
As it stands, the NVIDIA Shield pretty much works like any other Android device, but having access to a comfortable controller pad gives us the ability to be more precise. If you have ever attempted to use one, you know controlling the flying object is no easy feat. On-screen and motion controls make it even harder, so it is nice to see that NVIDIA Shield owners will be able to use the device’s controller with their Parrots.
Another great feature is that one can see the Parrot’s live camera feed through the Shield’s screen. This can also be done with any other Android device, but the added precision of the controller and lack of screen obtrusion makes for a much better experience.
