Ten years after this site started with its first project, a robotic blimp called Blimpduino, two long time friends here, Jordi Munoz and Jose Julio, are relaunching it in a new improved form. It's called, unsurprisingly, Blimpduino 2.0, and you can see the progress here

The is new one is based on fly-by-wire Wifi system (smartphone based) and supports computer vision with the OpenMV camera.  It's what we had in mind a decade ago, but just took years for the technology to catch up. 

It looks like it will be available in a couple months. Can't wait!
