OK, maybe this is a weird question... But has anyone ever tried to operate the Parrot AR.Drone using VoiceOver and perhaps some sighted help to keep track of where it's flying?
For those who don't know, the AR.Drone is a quad copter drone which can be controlled using an iOS app. I've looked around the app a bit, and it seems quite accessible. Right now I obviously can't do much without being connected to an AR.Drone, but it seems as though the actual app is quite usable. From what I can tell, the AR.Drone will do all things related to takeoff and landing automatically. During flight, you simply tilt your iPhone in whatever direction you want it to fly. It's equipped with sensors to keep it stable in the air, so basically if you don't do anything it won't drift off and crash somewhere. Speaking of crashing, I've read that it also includes sensors to detect obstacles, so it's not supposed to just crash into a wall or such things. Of course it would still be necessary to have a sighted person who could watch it fly around and give directions... So I was just wondering, has anyone done this before and could provide some experience? I guess if this works it could certainly be a lot of fun! :-)
Thanks for any replies!!! :-)
