CES 2013 - The Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 is a quadrotor drone that can be flown by your iPhone or programmed to be ran by your computer.

We saw the cool Parrot AR.Drone back at CES in January. The thing is a four-prop hovering helicopter gadget that you can control with the iPhone or iPod touch. The thing sports a pair of onboard cameras to help it fly.

The pair of cameras are used to beam video to the user directly on the iPhone and can be used for an autopilot system too. A new video from Parrot shows a pair of the drones having a dogfight.

 

The system can also create virtual enemies if you only have one drone to play with. Launch date and pricing are both still unknown, but considering the thing has cameras it won't be cheap.
