We’ll keep you updated.

Nvidia teams up with Parrot: Project SHIELD compatibility with Parrot AR.Drone 2.0 demoed at NGPU Technology Conference this week
Project Shield is a full Android device with integrated console-grade controls, which include two analog sticks, buttons, shoulder triggers, and a D-pad. As a fully functional Android device, it was demoed today piloting the AR.Drone 2.0 with a soon-to-be-announced update version of AR.Freeflight.
The result is a fantastic flying experience, explains Patrick Beaulieu, an NVIDIAN who will be demonstrating the combo at GTC’s exhibit hall.
Project SHIELD’s console quality control sticks make the drone a pleasure to fly, Beaulieu says.
And by moving the controls for the device off the screen, viewers can see the unobstructed view from drone’s high-definition camera reproduced on Project SHIELD’s retina-quality 5-inch screen.
