Experience Flying In First Person: Check out the Bebop, Parrot’s new Oculus Rift unit

Compared to the previous AR Drones, we are dealing here with the company's smartest flyer: the Parrot. It comes with a new “Skycontroller” that boasts a range no longer limited by the distance of regular Wi-Fi, but far beyond. You are even able to use your smartphone to control it, if you wish.

You have many possibilities with this new product. You can view through the drone's camera in real time and you can also rig up the Skycontroller to an Oculus Rift headset, allowing the user of the headset to become the drone, viewing its movements in first person through the camera.

 

Unfortunately, views won't be in 3D because there aren’t two cameras. The camera used by Parrot is a 14MP fisheye with an 180-degree field of vision. It is capable of capturing HD video stills, allows for real-time viewing and incorporates a new stabilization technique.

Quadcopters of this kind are easily buffeted by wind, but the camera that Parrot has helps to create a very stable image, using just one part of its great field of vision as well as some clever software. In that way the angle of view remains steady even if the Bebop is trembling.

The flight time of the Bebop is about 12 minutes on a battery charge. It is expected to be released in the fourth quarter of 2014 and the price has yet to be confirmed. More news about the Bebop will be available tomorrow, via the official blog of Parrot's team.
