Parrot Introduces at CES its New MiniDrone & Jumping Sumo, and Zik Headphones

Parrot’s new MiniDrone that defies gravity,  a Jumping Sumo bot and unique new headphones that are tuned by the late Lou Reed are certainly drawing attention at this year’s CES in Las Vegas. The MiniDrone is based on the company's original, much larger AR Drone, which is available at Apple's retail stores. The new, much smaller lightweight model has wheels, which enable it to climb walls or roll on the ceiling. The MiniDrone is intended for indoor use, and it connects using short-range Bluetooth and not Wi-Fi. It is expected to cost significantly less than its larger cousin, which costs $300. To keep the price low, the Mini AR Drone does not have an integrated 720p camera and it will not be able to record flights.

Parrot also brought to CES its Jumping Sumo bot. Jumping Sumo can roll and leap in the air. It is controlled through 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and includes a built-in camera.

Parrot did not announce the prices of its new toys, but it promised to keep them more affordable and more kid-friendly than the original AR Drone 2.0. A special app that controls both devices will be available from Apple's iOS App Store. The products are still in beta, and the company is planning on releasing them in the fall this year.

Parrot also brought to CES its new released result of Lou Reed and Parrot Zik collaboration: new headphones that are tuned by great Lou Reed.  The headphones named Zik are available in four popular colors: Yellow Gold, Classic, Rose Gold and Black Gold. The headphones’ tuning is one of the last works done by the late Lou Read, who was a close friend of the Parrot’s CEO Henri Seydoux.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
