While any drone, or for that matter any unmanned aerial vehicle at all, is impressive, the Parrot SLAMdunk developer kit can let drone operators really spread their wings. The kit, which can attach to any drone, lets professional or experienced amateur developers add a smart computing system onto their devices.
Though Parrot is a large distributor of consumer, non-professional drones and drone accessories, the Parrot SLAMdunk is decidedly geared towards people with an extensive knowledge of coding and computing. With the requisite know-how, Parrot SLAMdunk can turn regular drones into autonomous navigators, obstacle avoiders, and GPS-free flyers.
The developer kit isn't even limited to drones (though drones will likely be its most common application): it is also compatible with rolling robots and articulated arms.
