Draganflyer X8 has 8 Rotors and Makes the Ar.Drone Look Like the Toy It is
I really thought the Parrot AR.Drone was sweet when I first saw it. The thing is a four-propeller helicopter device with a camera you can control from your iPhone. I know the AR.Drone is really just a toy, and the Draganflyer X8 makes it look just like the toy it is.

Toshiba Says Death to 3d Glasses!
