Parrot AR.Drone

Miniature helicopters — or in this case, quadricopters — can be a lot of fun, but they also tend to come with fear-inducing black box remotes. Not so with the Parrot AR.Drone ($300). This Wi-Fi enabled techno-toy lets you use your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad to control the action, with two cameras to let you see what's around you, a foam hull to protect the blades, the ability to recognize 3D tages, compatibility with augmented reality flying games, and an ultrasound altimeter that lets the Drone hover while you plan your next move.
