At the beginning of this month, we read about how the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 is placed up for pre-order, and we too realize that this unique remote controlled toy can be under the influence of an iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, and an Android device. How about the Windows Phone camp? Well, when there is no way, it comes highly recommended that you carve out a way yourself, and in this case, one would definitely need to know the more intimate workings of the Windows Phone operating system. A trio of students at Texas A&M, John Brock, David Dornier, and Alex Perovich, decided to work together in order to have a Windows Phone smartphone control the Parrot AR.Drone.
With a Windows Phone handset, they were able to get the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 take off successfully, stabilize the flight as well as land it safe and sound. Now that this possibility is achieved, will the folks over at Parrot do something about their hardware compatibility with different smartphone operating systems?
