Air Hogs Connect Mission Drone delivers an immersive augmented reality (AR) gaming experience where you fly a physical drone in an interactive 3D universe. Using a BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) smart device and the free downloaded app, players fly the Mission Drone over the AR tracking mat, which uses visual and special tracking to create an advanced 3D augmented world, in hours of endless search and rescue missions and challenges.
Why we like it: Compatibility with your smart device is great! The focus point is made with the mat and phone directed towards both. Drone was able to activate with ease, but took some practice to get the hang of controlling the drone. Liked that there was one button that needed to be held down to float the drone. Other buttons were for directional cues for the drone. The mat was large enough to showcase other tasks and levels the drone could go through. A fun 3D video game! Liked the carrying case and heavy duty mat. I finally got the hang of it and couldn’t stop practicing! I can see the big trend with these techy toys!
