Parrot has had an interesting week. Many were expecting a new drone from the famous drone maker (among other things). But when you think about drones, chances are you are picturing a quadcopter in your mind. Instead, the company unveiled an airplane-like drone with two wings.
I had the chance to interview Parrot founder and CEO Henri Seydoux on our stage so that he could share a bit more about his vision of the drone industry.
This is the Disco. Henri says “you launch it like a Frisbee and pilot it like a videogame. It is very fast.” Oui – note the canards – tres cool. Kind of kid of senseFly – curious as to whether it was developed by the Swiss team.
Good interview, Henri is a smart guy.
