The Parrot AR.Drone quadcopter was one of our favorite tech toys of Consumer Electronics Shows past. For 2012, the app-controlled hovercopter is getting some hardware and software tweaks designed to make the device easier to fly. Better location and orientation sensors should make the drone more stable in the air, and a new pressure sensor will help it hold its altitude more accurately when it's more than a few feet off the ground (when the ultrasonic ground proximity sensor is ineffective). There's also a 720p video camera built into the nose, and some improved control app features for iOS and Android. We're hoping to test-fly it later this week.
