Oh The Places You’ll Drone

Parrot Rolling Spider Mini Drone

What It Is: An app-controlled drone – basically an ultra fancy, ultra high tech version of those remote controlled helicopters your little brother used to fly when you were kids. The Parrot Rolling Spider Minidrone comes in 3 colours and can be used indoors or outdoors. With some helpful flying tutorials and a user-friendly app with built-in acrobatic tricks, soon you’ll be freewheeling on walls, ceilings, and in the wild blue yonder with no problem. It also includes a vertical camera, allowing you to capture the world from above. I’m not a tech expert, but this fun gadget / toy hybrid has won plenty of awards and includes loads of unique and handy design features, like a super light weight, increased stability and a distinctive ‘freefall’ mode.

Who It’s For: That little brother that’s all grown up and looking for a new toy. Your outdoors-loving hubby, to take on hunting, fishing or camping trips to capture all the action from above. Your kids, to give them hands on experience with robotics and drones.

What It Costs: $120

Where It’s At: The Source, Future Shop, Best Buy and Apple stores. Click here for locations.
