Parrot Jumping Sumo

 

Hands-on at CES 2014: Parrot's smartphone controlled toy that can leap and crawl on the ground

We’ve been waiting to see if Parrot was capable of producing a smartphone controlled toy that works on the ground and the Sumo has all the ingredients to be a lot of fun. If Parrot can get the pricing right, there will be plenty of people both young...

Parrot MiniDrone Jumping Sumo review

 

The word "drone" at this point probably conjures up images of unmanned aerial vehicles conducting military airstrikes or multirotor aircraft for aerial photography or delivering packages .

The Parrot MiniDrone Jumping Sumo is a fun, two-wheeled rover with a camera that streams a first-person view for piloting through your environment with a smartphone or tablet. The camera can also capture low-res photos and video.

Video capture is limited to VGA resolution and requires a Micro-USB thumb drive for storage. Battery life is "up to" 20 minutes, and the battery is charged in the Sumo and takes about 90 minutes to top off. Wi-Fi connection can be temperamental.

The Parrot MiniDrone Jumping Sumo gives you a ground-level look at your environment as it spins and jumps at your command.

If quadcopters aren't you're thing, the two-wheeled Jumping Sumo is a fun smartphone accessory with a camera that gives you a new perspective on your surroundings.

Review: Parrot's Jumping Sumo minidrone

 

With all the interest surrounding aerial drones of late, it might seem like a step backwards for Parrot to come out with a quirky two-wheeled vehicle that rolls around on the floor. But after spending some time with its new, spring-loaded minidrone, we...

The Jumping Sumo has a top speed of 7 km/h (4.5 mph), with a slider on the left of screen to control acceleration and braking. Steering, however, does get a little bit trickier. There are buttons for 90 and 180 degree turns when at a standstill, but to...

Parrot Jumping Sumo And Rolling Spider Review: Mini Bots Best For Drone Newcomers

 

Parrot is trying to expand the reach of its consumer drone products with two new gadgets now available to buy, the Jumping Sumo and the Rolling Spider

These toys are great fun for those looking for a novel gadget to get beginners and those on a tight budget interested in drones, but they’re definitely not going to win over the serious enthusiast, and they offer up too many compromises to please...

Test: Parrot Jumping Sumo

 

Överraskningseffekten hos den som drabbas är nog det som är mest glädjande med den hoppande lilla sumo-bollen.

Först när jag får Jumping Sumo är jag tvungen att vänta på att den ska ladda. Det kommer senare att visa sig vara ett vanligt återkommande irritationsmoment. Under tiden som batteriet i bollen laddas passar jag på att förbereda telefonen. Rätt app ska...

Parrot Jumping Sumo drone

 

Jumping Sumo kan både hoppe og springe, og du kan kjøre rundt hjørner med den mens du bruker dens kamera som dine øyne.

Det fremadrettede kameraet strømmer i realtime og lar deg styre dronen i førstepersons perspektiv. Robust og med mange forskjellige funksjoner og bevegelsesmønster. Kan ta bilder og video

Det tar 90 minutter å lade batteriet. Og du kan bare lagre videoklipp hvis du har en miniUSB-kontakt og som i tillegg kan være vanskelig å få til å passe i den tilhørende inngangen

Kameraet kan både ta stillbilder (640 x 480 piksler) og video, så lenge man forsyner dronen med lagringsplass via en miniUSB-kontakt, noe de færreste har liggende. Vi har ikke mye å kritisere Jumping Sumo for, men mener det ville ha vært bedre å bruke...

Parrot Minidrone Jumping Sumo: Hoppar rakt in i hjärtat

 

Den andra drönaren i Parrots Minidrone-serie är ingen enhet som svävar i luften, utan en som rullar runt på marken och har möjligheten att hoppa rakt in i våra hjärtan.

Lång laddningstid ; Endast ”hårda” svängar ; Aningen dyr
