I seen this in CES and this not new. It's just the power of what the iphone can do.

The iPhone application does one of two things:
A: Transmits simple telemetry, and receives a simple video signal.
or B: Transmits and receives a more complex signal than is necessary.
That said, essentially any device with an accelerometer, touch screen, and Bluetooth/WiFi (not sure which one the toy uses) could be programmed to work with the toy. The hard part is getting the toy to interpret the commands properly, and keep all the stability. Especially, are there fail-safes for if, say, one motor begins to malfunction? Will it and its caddy-corner motor disengage, leaving the other two motors to pick up a bit and just allow for a safe landing, or pick up enough to even finish the mission/game, perhaps?

I saw this at CES and watched it for a bit as well as got some video of it. It is coola nd all but 500 bucks is a joke.
there was another flyer there that comes with its own remote and looks like a star wars fighter and has asuper nice case and everything the control on it was unreal he was flying it over peoples heads and landing it ona small pad without any problem at all. and it was only 300 bucks
any ways it was cool tho

lol i didnt say anything about the cam factor i wouldnt even add it to it. I was simply saying that another one with much better movment and control was cheaper
As for the cam factor it woudl eb cool but with a less then 15 min battery life how much use would this toy really be?
Any who thats just my opinion and its only worth what you want it to be :P
Best part of ces 2010 would be the Samsung area and the Ed hardy girls lol
Oh and Stan Lee i got hsi autograph it was cool but ya i didnt see much mind blowing stuff this year

Well, but now you're comparing sedans to minivans. Yea, a sedan is cheaper and better mileage, but it's impractical for hauling 8 people and a bunch of sleeping bags/equipment/etc. You're comparing a less expensive copter with a longer play time to something with a far more specific purpose.
And there's only a couple things I've ever done on my iPod touch for more than 15 minutes at once, so 15 minutes of battery life on the copter would be fine for someone like me, most likely.
