This Techie Tuesday, we’re excited about Parrot’s Bebop 2 Drone!
The second-generation Bebop leisure quadcopter is super light at just over a pound, and offers 25 minutes of flying time, a boost over the limited flight time of its predecessor. The Bebop 2 will be available on Dec. 14, just in time for you last minute holiday shoppers, for $549.99.
The Bebop 2 sports an embedded, 14-megapixel fish-eye camera with digital stabilization that takes Full HD videos. It’s piloted via an app on your iOS or Android smartphone or tablet. Once connected to your device via Wi-Fi MIMO, the Bebop 2 should have a “perfectly stable connection” up to 984 feet. Just tilt or pivot your phone in the direction you want the drone to go, and it will follow.
Images are streamed live on the screen of your smartphone or tablet, and you can digitally change the angle of the camera with a swipe of your finger. The device can hold 8GB of recorded content, which can easily be transferred over to your phone, tablet, or computer when you’re ready. read more
