CES 2014: Parrot MiniDrone is a bitesize hover-bot

1:04 /

The Parrot MiniDrone is fitted with two wheels that let it walk on the ceiling.

Everyone wants to own a drone, but they're just too big. Enter Parrot's Mini Drone. So the Mini Drone is a lot like the drones that Parrot already makes. You pilot it using your smartphone and there are at least four rotors on the top that keep it in the air. However, this one is much smaller. It also has these two wheels on the side. Now they are particularly cool because as well as protecting you when it's flying around, they also allow you to walk while it's on the floor, or while it's on the ceiling. It charges up by micro USB. Parrot tells me that you'll get about 10 minutes of flight, so that's not very long but probably long enough to satisfy all your drone needs and scare all of your pets. It's coming out later this year. There is no word on pricing yet though. I'm very excited though. I love the idea of a really compact drone especially one that could walk on the ceiling. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET at CES 2014. Check out CES. CNET.com for more.
