Watch Parrot's New Disco Drone In Action

Video: Parrot’s new fixed-wing Disco drone is one of the most fun little gadgets to have come out of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, and even ended up being my favourite product of CES 2016. Now Parrot’s giving us a bit more of a look at how it flies — and the kind of quality you can expect from that little camera on its nose.


Parrot's New Fixed-Wing Drone Is A 80km/h Party In The Sky

The consumer drone explosion of the last few years has been mostly limited to quadcopter-style multirotors. Until now. Meet the Disco, Parrot’s super-fast drone party in the sky.


A $20 Upgrade Lets You Create Autonomous Flight Plans For Parrot's Bebop Drone

Hot on the heels of Tesla revealing the new autonomous driving mode for its electric cars, Parrot has just announced a $US20 upgrade for its Bebop drone that lets amateur (and unskilled) pilots easily plot a course on a map that the craft will autonomously follow using GPS.


What's New With Parrot's Zik 3 Wireless Headphones?

Parrot just revealed the third generation Zik headphones. The Zik 3.0 will look very familiar if you’ve ever seen the Zik 2.0, since the design remains largely unchanged, it’s just available in some gaudy new styles. But a couple of tiny tweaks like wireless charging and USB audio make them even more futuristic.


Parrot Isn't Actually Going To Sell Its Fantastic Dual-Mode Dash System

Parrot’s RNB6 promised an in-dash system that would work with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It promised a Utopia of car tech that would make any smartphone compatible with basically any car. And it still promises all those things, but only if you buy a new vehicle.


Parrot Minidrone Hands On: Hydrofoil, Airbone And Jumping Sumo

In the grand ranking of remote-controlled vehicles, the only thing better than a remote controlled plane is a remote-controlled boat. At least, that’s what I used to think. After playing with Parrot’s new generation of Minidrones, I realise that a remote controlled hydrofoil is the true champion of RC anything.


Parrot Bebop Drone Review: Looks Aren't Everything

You’ve graduated from your cheap beginner drone, and you want to try something new. Something that can shoot beautiful video from the sky — but doesn’t cost $1,000+ like a camera-equipped DJI Phantom. You spot the $US500 Parrot Bebop Drone, and pull the trigger. It’s kind of fun, you think, between strings of obscenities.


Parrot Zik 2.0 Headphones: Australian Review

How do you make a pair of headphones smart? Well, you give them their own app and Bluetooth, with the ability to adjust the intensity of noise cancelling, alter an onboard equaliser to tailor bass and treble to any song you might desire, or to download an artist setting to best suit their discography. Oh, and you make them sound excellent.

And that’s exactly what has happened here. Parrot has tweaked, redesigned and redefined the already good original Zik into a very good pair of headphones.


Android Auto Is The Coolest Thing At CES This Year

Android Auto is the future of mainstream in-car entertainment, and its coming of age is this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. I can’t wait to get it in my own car.


Parrot's New In-Dash System Lets Your Car Love Android And Apple Alike

While Apple CarPlay and Android Auto promise to make your car’s in-dash system infinitely more bearable in the not so distant future, you’re still stuck in the unfortunate position of having to choose between one or the other. Not so Parrot’s whimsically named RNB6, which lets you go both ways. Oh, and it has a dash cam built right in.
