Parrot MiniDrone

Parrot's revealing of one of its new toys MiniDrone was a big hit at the 2014 International CES. Ultra-compact, easy to use and tons of fun, the MiniDrone is a small quadrocopter similar to their AR.Drone. Despite being small enough to hold in the palm of your hand and it being controlled by a smartphone app, the MiniDrone is actually quite powerful. Parrot says it put a ton of effort into ensuring that the drone would be stable and easy to use, particularly because they want the MiniDrone to be kid-friendly. Adding to the fun for kids is the fact that the drone comes with removable wheels, so it can run from the floors to walls and ceilings. Not to worry though, it is designed to fly without harming any of its surroundings! The MiniDrone is retailing for $99.99.
