You can even directly wire in other sensors, such as air/fuel ratio or temperature, and yes, you can use it to wirelessly reset those “check engine” warnings.

Inspected Gadget: Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter

Up ’til now, prototype videos of the  iPhone-controlled Parrot AR.Drone Quadricopter have been floating around, but it’s now available for purchase. Pretty slick quadricopter design allows for multidirectional movement. While it’s obviously cool that the app for iPhone/iPad/iPod touch serves as a remote control for the drone’s movement, it’s even cooler that it displays a video feed from the front of the vehicle, and even better are the game apps that track scoring in dogfights and other types of augmented-reality battles.
