So, while saving my allowance for such an obviously-frivolous toy purchase (though I could use it to maybe assist with lofting the occasional antenna), we see that Parrot announced several months ago that their Bebop drone, with all-round better capabilities, will be coming soon.
“Coming soon!” they exclaim. “No pricing yet,” they add, “but just wait ’til you see it! It’ll be so much more awesome than our current AR Drones!”
Sure, the quotes aren’t quotes — they’re entirely fabricated, but it’s the idea that counts. They have, of course, reinforced the idea with some long-standing, front-page, above-the-fold links on their site consisting of big, pretty, colorful marketing photos.
Parrot seems to have triggered an Osborne Effect and may have trouble getting this new bird to fly.
