After goofing around with it at the office last week, we decided to post a quick review of the AR Drone by Parrot. Since shooting the video, I also managed to fracture the Drone's cross-bar, which costs a reasonable $25 to replace. So, while it's not the cheapest or most durable gadget, it is a lot of fun, and definitely less expensive than some other flying hobbies--like building your own model plane from scratch (and then crashing it in the office).

Very cool stuff, thanks for decided to go the open source route. I'm fairly certain I'll be using bits and pieces of that in my car, that's for sure
Source code is now available via a tarball on ICS's landing page for the demo. It includes the Photoshop files used to generate to UI. http://www.ics.com/services/qtquick
Source code is now available. Including the original photoshop files. Eventually I want to get this in a public source code repository like gitorious.
