Here is where Daft Punk’s “Higher Stronger Faster” song comes in to echo the latest updates that are applied to the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0, where it would then allow this particular device to fly further, faster and of course, higher. You will get to experience even more astonishing flights, as flights will now be able to be displayed in 3D, while video storage and GPS localization is also made possible courtesy of a new Flight Recorder module. Not only that, you are able to gain access to the Director Mode feature which will cater for filming what is under the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 from high up above, making you feel like you are an old hand with it.
Not only that, a spanking new High Density Battery has also been touted to increase the flight time by a whopping 50%, now how about that? I guess it is technological advancements and updates like these which breathe a new lease of life into your Parrot AR.Drone 2.0, and we definitely are wondering what other surprises that Parrot has in store for the AR.Drone 2.0 sometime down the road.
Earlier this February, we brought you word that GameStick pre-orders have been going up for $79 a pop, with the first orders tipped to ship sometime in April 2013. Having said that, April 2013 has already come and gone, and we are more than halfway through the year now without any further news on GameStick’s next proposed shipping date. At least, until now, as PlayJam recently announced that the first GameStick Android gaming devices will begin to ship this coming August.
Better late than never applies here I guess, and those who have placed their money to back the GameStick in their Kickstarter campaign will be able to receive theirs first before the rest of the world who preferred to stand back and watch things happen before taking the plunge. Just a quick refresher – the GameStick device comes across as a small stick which can be plugged into the HDMI port on a TV, so that you can enjoy an Android-based game on a far larger display in your living room as compared to even a 13.3” Android-powered tablet. There will also be an optional dock that increases the amount of connectivity by including USB ports, an Ethernet jack, and power.
