This is obviously fake. 

If it was real, the iPhone screen would have broken in the fall. ;)

Cool, I downloaded and installed the OCTiPAD version into my IPAD,

that explains why the new one is a little thicker, amazing how they

get eight motors in there.  The props are marked FC, I guess you can

order replacement prop pairs directly from FoxConn?

That was hilarious...I bet we're not that far away from it being a reality.

Miss the days when animation was enough.

The obvious application is the delivery of a messages/pictures without using the phone network!

In rural areas where raptors abound, there might be some some messages lost due to predation.

It would also be a good idea to label the 'iDroPhone' with the owner's name and address.

Now there's a startup! Prepaid postage labels for flying phones that are found in public!



[great video!]

Remind me to fly it indoors or I'd probably lose a $600 device.
