Parrot has today expanded their line of robot toys, taking the wraps off its new Parrot MiniDrone and Jumping Sumo robots.
The MiniDrone is quite a bit smaller than the previous AR:Drone, and is capable of climbing walls, rolling across ceilings and comes in a smaller form factor. The drone uses Bluetooth Low Energy and is controlled using Parrot’s app for smartphones and tablets.
The second is the Jumping Sumo, a robot toy that is also controlled using a smartphone or tablet, but this time it uses Wi-Fi 5GHz technology to communicate. The main thing about the Jumping Sumo is that it can spin, turn 90 degrees and even jump up to 80cm high.
No information on pricing or worldwide availability has been announced yet.
