It’s time for the Nook tablet customers to fly the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 quadricopter with their device. Barnes & Noble has announced that the AR.FreeFlight 2.0 app is available for a free download at its Nook Store.
The app controls the Parrot quadricopter over WiFi and you can capture photos and videos with the Drone 2.0′s embedded cameras and share them via the app.
Through the AR.FreeFlight 2.0 app on NOOK Tablet, pilots can watch live on the Nook Tablet’s advanced VividView touchscreen what the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 is seeing and also record high-definition video and pictures from embedded cameras on the quadricopter, offering high-definition views from the sky, Barnes and Noble said in a statement.
You can also share the pictures and videos with your friends by uploading them to YouTube or Picasa from the app itself.
The piloting app is easy to use so the most inexperienced quadricopter pilot looks like a pro.
Simply double-tapping the button of the right side of the Nook makes the Drone 2.0 perform flips.
Parrot AR.Drone 2.0, which is available for purchase at select Barnes & Noble stores, and online at BN.com, for $299.
