At $129.99 (according to their website) its price point seems to be a bit high for the toy market. Hopefully, some developers will come up with some more useful applications. My first thought was to stick a big "8" on it and have some fun at the local billiards hall.

yes Alex, it's in the article, I embedded it... if you can't see it, try switching browser. I think IE browser has trouble with our embedded videos for some reason...

A novel remote controlled game ball.With about 6 balls and 6 users a new game can be designed with a game board. More fun to the kids with this game.

This is can be a very good handy tool in medical imaging, but unfortunately the developer is not talking about that at all.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses? Panelists: Chad Sweet, Director of Engineering, Qualcomm; Yannick Levy, VP Corporate Business Development, Parrot; Jim Williams, ex-FAA drone chief; Michael Drobac, Exec. Director, Small UAV Coalition; Moderator: Junko Yoshida, Chief Int'l Correspondent, EE Times
