An experiment…

With Father’s Day approaching, I’m going to file this one under “Blog posts?, Do my family read my”.

This popped up on my Pulse this morning.

AR.Drone 2.0: An Awesome, High-Flying Father’s Day Gift [REVIEW]

     

Says Lance Ulanoff:

The Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 is expensive ($299) and can only fly for 15 minutes on a charge, but it’s still a leading contender for the best Father’s Day gift you might ever buy.

When I tried out the new AR.Drone earlier this year, I sensed its entertainment value, but it wasn’t until I brought it home and took it for a bunch of real test flights that I discovered the compelling nature of this remote-control flying and HD video-recording entertainment device. It’s best described as your own personal spy drone.

His full review is honest and interesting and anyone reading it would be sure to buy their Dad a Parrot AR.Drone 2.0, even if it did cost R2,500. (Eina.)

So, aside from flying your own personal spy drone, what are your plans for the weekend?

  • Reflex

    Spending 20 odd hours in aircraft travelling to the dead centre of the United States.
    Will spend Fathers Day by myself in a hotel room – can you hear the violins playing softly in the background?

  • If you have a recently deceased pet, you may consider this: http://bit.ly/KpeGUL

    Or not.

  • Reflex > Ouch.
