Parrot, the company behind the AR drone is gearing up to release two new iOS controlled devices: both the MiniDrone and the Jumping Sumo.

The MiniDrone is a small quadrocopter derived from the AR Drone and controlled using an iPhone app letting you adjust the pitch, yaw, altitude and rotation. The device also sports large wheels to act as protection when flying into objects.

Parrot MiniDrone: A miniature drone piloted in Bluetooth Low Energy with a Smartphone or a tablet, that flies... and rolls from floor to ceiling.

Parrot Jumping Sumo: The first robot-insect, controlled in Wi-Fi 5GHz with a Smartphone or a tablet that spins, jumps up to 80 cm and takes 90 degree turns.


The Jumping Sumo is a controlled system that uses an accelerometer, gyroscope and swipe gestures to navigate and turn. It features a QVGA camera as well and 802.11ac WiFi to communicate with the app and show that the device sees in real-time.

No word on the exact release date or pricing unfortunately, however Parrot claims they will be available later this year.
