Whether you’re a kid stuck at home on a snow day or a kid stuck at the office on a workday, toys rock. And kids of all ages know the coolest toys are remote controlled, letting you fly or drive away a dull afternoon from your couch or cubicle. If anything can beat that, it’s toys that you can control wirelessly with your iPhone or iPad.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the last 18 months you've probably heard of the augmented reality flying video game/real world quadrocopter that is the Parrot AR.Drone. We've seen this thing at every industry trade show or publicity opportunity imaginable (though it's still admittedly pretty cool.) Now the company has announced a new promotion: an online flying competition.
