Chinese man builds full size AR.Drone to fly around

This has to be the bravest dude on the planet, or perhaps the dumbest I can’t really decide. A Chinese farmer named Shu Mansheng has designed his own flying contraption that has no wings and used eight motorcycle engines fitted with propellers inside a big metal circle that holds a basket.

When the Parrot AR.Drone landed a last year, it was a toy that many of us wanted really badly. We put up our review of the AR.Drone from Parrot last December and liked the toy pretty well. I am surprised that it has taken so long for us to see hacks that use the AR.Drone for things that are potentially nefarious. Hackers have created an AR.Drone that can hack into wireless networks while flying.

Drone Ace offers much more control of AR.Drone than official app

Our geeky little hearts were all aflutter when the AR.Drone first launched with its iPhone control app and easy to fly nature. It is also very cool that the AR.Drone turned out to be such a hackable little flying machine for geeks to play with. A new app has surfaced called Drone Ace that adds in some features that will have fans of the AR.Drone running to get their wallets. The new app is called Drone Ace and you can grab it on the App Store right now.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 51 2010

Welcome to the first post Christmas Week in Review! I hope you had a great Christmas, let's get right to it. We heard Monday that wireless carriers were openly looking at ways that they can charge users a fee per service. It seems like a scheme to get user to take advantage of the sponsored services that the carrier offers rather than using third party services. Carrier services are expected to be offered free while things like YouTube would cost 50 cents monthly.

Kinect Quadrocopter is your autonomous AR.Drone [Video]

Parrot's AR.Drone - which we reviewed over the weekend - is clever, but it still requires a meat pilot; strap on a Kinect sensor bar, meanwhile, and a quadrocopter is capable of going it alone.

SlashGear Week in Review – Week 48 2010

Welcome to the latest edition of the SlashGear Week in Review! Apple rejected an app for inclusion on the App Store this week because it was a magazine app about Android. The publisher of the app said that the person at Apple he spoke with said, "You know… your magazine. It’s just about Android…. we can’t have that in our App Store." A report came in early in the week that Windows Phone 7 was outsold by Android devices 15:1 in the UK. The revelation came by way of an aggregator of store deals in the UK called MobilesPlease.
