Today Parallax came out to MAKE HQ and let us test drive a number of their cool toys. They set up their quadcopters, y-copters, and hexcopters, hooked their ELEV-8 to an Intova camera, and used the video to fly with a first-person perspective. We pulled the feed into a streaming video, and had a great bird’s eye view of the O’Reilly/MAKE campus. A copter only fell out of the sky once, and they had it up and running again in no time. But let’s face it, crashes are a lot of fun to watch. Parallax also showed us their Propeller BoBots and Eddie, a Kinect-equipped robot they’ve been working on. Here’s the video so you can check out all the robot action for yourself.
