What's the connectivity? WiFi? What if it flies out of your own WiFi coverage?

Then it should probably have a self-destruct feature!

Wi-Fi control toys create a scientific mind to the kids. They can use various software plate forms and write their code and test the toys. A great new application to our children and grand children.

Helicopter can easily fly out of range :)

Sure and the lawyers will love them. Flying whirling blades into someone's face is not a good way to test code.

Children should be able to learn science in an non-intrusive manner. Spying on your neighbor for fun will openly lead to more bullying aftre the video hits the Internet. Not good.

You don't fly these things very far typically, usually within sight of the operator.

How is a WiFi toy going to teach a kid anything about science? The whole thing is plug and play and probably not able to be modified or repaired. The helicopter could indeed be flown out of control range, or even more likely, be subject to jamming signals, accidental or intentional. In fact, it could probably be shot down with a rubber band from some of the "office marksmen" that I have observed in the past. The concerns about invasion of privacy certainly do seem to be another consideration, unless the video resolution is so very poor that those observed are not identifiable.

I've recently viewed images from some people in Syria who have used something similar (although may have been homemade) to take birds eye photographs of demonstrations, which were then posted on the web.

The best way to learn any science is to read books. Such toys are made for playtime!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
